Lineker: Only one Arsenal player can fit in Man City or Liverpool team

Lineker: Only one Arsenal player can fit in Man City or Liverpool team

Gary Lineker says only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can fit in Liverpool, Manchester City or Tottenham team.

Lineker, who expects Arsenal to finish outside top four says the Gunners didn't have the squad to compete under Arsene Wenger, the same squad Unai Emery inherited. The former Barcelona and Tottenham man says it is 'way too early' for the club's supporters to be questioning Emery as he feels there was no point of sacking Wenger with limited improvement on the field. 

Speaking to BT Sport, he said, "If you sack Arsene Wenger and then say to the guy who replaces him you have no money to spend on new players, I would ask what was the point of sacking Wenger in the first place?"

“They didn’t have the squad to compete when Wenger was there let alone now; so what is Emery really supposed to have been able to do so far? How many of their team would get in Tottenham, Manchester City or Liverpool’s side? Ask yourself that.

“One possibly? Aubameyang? That would be it. It’s way too early (to be speculating on Emery’s future), but that’s football in the modern day. At some clubs, you get more time than others. I suspect at Arsenal you get more time, as you’ve got to look at the longevity of Wenger’s reign."

 “He’s a good coach and he’s got a great track record, but it will be really difficult for them to get in the top four – I said that at the start of the season.”

Arsenal will travel to Borisov Arena to take on FC BATE Borisov in the Europa League round of 32 first leg tie.
