Steven Gerrard: Arsenal Don’t Have Enough Players Who Go the Extra Mile

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has questioned Arsenal’s title ambitions this season, claiming the Gunners don’t have enough players who go the “extra mile” when on the pitch.

Gerrard left the Premier League last season to join MLS side LA Galaxy, however the ex-England skipper still keeps a close eye on English football and is currently working as a pundit for BT Sport’s coverage of the Champions League.

And the 35-year-old believes Arsenal will keep coming up short in both the domestic and European stage until Arsene Wenger signs a big leader at centre half and another midfielder powerhouse.

Gerrard also heaped praise on the injured Francis Coquelin, who will be on the sidelines for three months following a knee injury against West Brom at the weekend:


The Gunners were 3-0 winners against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League tonight, thanks to an emphatic double from Alexis Sanchez and a header from Germany international Mesut Ozil.
