“He had 3/10 rating last night against WestHam, I can’t tolerate such player in my club, drop him to the bench or you’ll risk losing your job”- Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke tells Mikel Arteta that he MUST drop £150k-p/w Arsenal star who was very ‘disgraceful’ against WestHam

“He had 3/10 rating last night against WestHam, I can’t tolerate such player in my club, drop him to the bench or you’ll risk losing your job”- Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke tells Mikel Arteta that he MUST drop £150k-p/w Arsenal star who was very ‘disgraceful’ against WestHam

“I can’t tolerate such a player in my club, drop him to the bench or you’ll risk losing your job,” says Stan Kroenke, the owner of Arsenal, to Mikel Arteta, telling him that the £150,000-a-week player who was “disgraceful” against WestHam has to be fired.

The star of Arsenal, who scored a 3/10 against West Ham, has to drop out of the starting lineup.

In the Carabao Cup, Mikel Arteta’s team had a poor night, with one player standing out as an especially poor performer.

Wednesday night at the London Stadium was a night to forget for Arsenal as they lost 3-1 to West Ham United in the Carabao Cup, preventing them from moving on to the quarterfinals.

After defeating Brentford in the previous round, Mikel Arteta would have expected a similar result against Premier League opponents against the Irons, but that did not happen.

The north Londoners’ Carabao Cup campaign ended in defeat, far from the welcome Declan Rice had hoped for on his return to east London.

Why Arsenal couldn’t win against West Ham

Arsenal had the better of the first half of the match in terms of possession, but as the Irons started to put pressure on the defense, things quickly went south.

According to Sofascore, the Gunners won with 71% of the possession, but their weaknesses were shown when the hosts scored three goals from just five shots on goal.

Ben White gave David Moyes’ team the lead in the first half by heading Jarrod Bowen’s corner past Aaron Ramsdale, who had a difficult night in goal on his comeback.

Following the interval, Mohammed Kudus gave West Ham a more commanding lead than Arsenal’s defense could have imagined, demonstrating that Arteta’s team talk had clearly failed to galvanize his group.

Martin Odegaard scored a consolation goal just seconds before time ran out, but Bowen’s third goal for the Hammers put the game beyond the visitors’ reach around the hour mark.

Although Arsenal’s game in east London was characterized by defensive lapses and a disorganized midfield, one player in particular stood out as the bad apple.

Oleksandr Zinchenko’s matchup with West Ham in terms of numbers

Oleksandr Zinchenko struggled defensively against West Ham, which is why Arteta has started Takehiro Tomiyasu ahead of the Ukrainian in recent games.

Journalist Josh Bunting called the full-back “weak,” and Kudus made fun of him for the host’s second goal, capping an unsettling display from the four-time Premier League winner. The defender was in fact found dozing off on the left flank as the summer addition to the Hammers skillfully collected the ball and then caught Zinchenko off guard.

The £150,000-per-week dud was fired by Arteta after 57 minutes, with Arsenal star Eduardo Hagn labeling his defense as “disgraceful.”

The Ukraine international didn’t have a great game in what little time he had on the field, but his miserable individual struggles on the left side of defense left a bad taste in the mouths of those who watched.

According to Sofascore, Zinchenko lost all eight of his aerial duels, failed all of his attempted dribbles, and gave up possession eight times, exposing his weaknesses for the Hammers to take advantage of.

Journalist Charles Watts of Goal gave the former Manchester City defender, who has only played one ground duel at left-back, a lackluster 3/10 match rating, calling the 26-year-old “suspect” on defense.

It served as a wake-up call for both Arteta, who brought up Zinchenko’s potential end as the Gunners’ starting left-back, and Arsenal, who are currently undefeated in the Premier League.
