Arsenal did just enough to defeat Liverpool 3-1 in the Premier League on Sunday, but Gary Neville is not satisfied with the contribution of one player who has failed to win his heart. Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville expressed disappointment with Kai Havertz’s performance in Arsenal’s win over Liverpool.

The German International, playing as the main striker in the absence of Gabriel Jesus, struggled to pose a significant goal threat for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Arteta did not bring in a forward in the January transfer window despite being linked with many players. Ahead of the top of the table clash vs Liverpool, Arsenal suffered a huge blow with Brazillian forward, Gabriel Jesus ruled out with injury.

The Gunners will however not have too many reasons to think about the attacking worries today, after a 3-1 win at Emirates Stadium.

Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard scored the goals to hand Mikel Arteta’s men maximum points in London on Sunday evening.

While undertaking punditry duty with Sky Sports after the game, Gary Neville specifically highlighted a moment in the second half where Havertz allowed Alexis Mac Allister to dispossess him easily.

Neville criticized Havertz, stating, “I just thought it was poor play from Havertz. He should never give Mac Allister a chance to get in there. He shows too much to the Liverpool midfielder.”

Gary Neville added ” It’s not a penalty for me at all. I think we’ll be sitting here talking about Arsenal’s lack of cutting edge. Been here four or five times this season where I’ve thought that centre forward position needs to be dealt with. It’s not just the centre forwards, it’s the rest of them as well and the mentality of scoring goals. ”

Neville’s comments on Havertz’s performance have become a recurring theme, raising questions about the impact of the German striker’s signing on Arsenal’s title aspirations.
