Arsenal hero Keown blames Luiz, Leno for Wolves defeat

Arsenal hero, Martin Keown has condemned David Luiz and Bernd Leno for their roles in the club’s defeat to Wolves.

In his column in the Daily Mail, Keown stated: “At Molineux, David Luiz made a mistake, then Bernd Leno made a very costly miscalculation in the 72nd minute.

“You might be able to snatch something with 10 men, but nine crushes your chances and left Mikel Arteta on a hiding to nothing.

“Leno took a risk by rushing out of his box — the speedy Adama Traore’s presence perhaps made him uncomfortable — and he played volleyball instead of football.

“With nine men from then on, Arsenal’s formation became 4-4-0. The job of the two banks of four was to stop Wolves from making matters worse.

“Arsenal wanted to keep it at 2-1 in the hope one chance would fall their way late on. Having said that, they could have done with going for it more in the final few minutes.

“This was a horrible night for Arteta and one of huge frustration after Arsenal’s seven-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.”
