Arsenal called ‘babies’ by Manchester United legend

Arsenal has been termed as ‘babies’ by former Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra following their Monday loss at the hands of Sheffield United.

Evra was critical of Arsenal’s mentality as they missed a chance to go third on the Premier League log and the Frenchman said he had not seen any changes in the team since his playing days.

"Sheffield United deserved the win, but I'm not surprised about Arsenal," he told Monday Night Football.

"I used to call them 'my babies' 10 years ago, and they are still when I look at them and think they are 'my babies'... that's the truth-I'm not being disrespectful when I say that.

"They look pretty, but they don't look like a winning team. They like playing good football, but I was so happy to play against them because I knew I was going to win.

Robin Van Persie

"Even when Robin van Persie came, and on the first day I shook his hand, and I said, 'welcome to a man's club'. In the beginning, he was upset, but after one month he said, 'you were completely right, Patrice'. I just don't see any leadership. I don't see any character or any personality. They look weak mentally.

"They have big players in David Luiz, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, but there has been something missing for a few years now.

"Matteo Guendouzi was playing in midfield, but before he was playing in the French second league and he was not even playing regularly - and he's the best player in this team.

"I respect Aubameyang and Lacazette, but if those two guys don't score, they're in trouble, and nothing changes. I'm like, 'where is Arsene?' It is the same."

The win propelled Sheffield to ninth on the log.
