Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has accused members of Mikel Arteta’s squad of ‘disrespecting’ the club’s history.

The Gunners had lost seven of their last ten matches before a 3-1 win against Chelsea on Boxing Day.

Arsenal remain in 15th place in the Premier League and the club are just three matches away from the halfway point of the season.

Speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Tottenham v Fulham, Saha says Arsenal’s players need to take more responsibility because their ‘attitude’ is unbecoming of such a top club.

‘There needs to be a lot more leadership coming from the Arsenal players,’ said Saha.

‘Yes, results are very important, but there have been a few occasions where players have disrespected the history of Arsenal Football Club.

‘I’m not here to judge, but some of the attitude I’ve seen from their players is just not acceptable for a club of that stature.’

Despite their miserable beginning to the campaign, Saha feels that Arteta’s side are still capable of securing a top-six finish if they can put together a series of good results.

‘Of course, a top-half finish is still achievable,’ the Frenchman continued. ‘Even a top-six finish.

‘A good run of four or five wins and all of the sudden they are back in the mix and climbing up the table. Man United were in a similar situation a few weeks back and look at where they are now.’
