“Terrible Footballer” – Arsenal Star Savaged For “Shocking” Display vs Liverpool

By on December 30, 2018


Some Arsenal fans have savaged Stephan Lichtsteiner following his disastrous performance during the 5-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday evening.

Lichtsteiner has been deputising for the injured Hector Bellerin at right-back in recent weeks and the experienced defender once again lined-up alongside the likes of Sokratis, Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac for Arsenal against Liverpool last night.

However, the 34-year-old looked out of his depth at times against a rampant Liverpool attack with Lichtsteiner’s poor attempted clearance leading to the hosts equaliser just two minutes after Ainsley Maitland-Niles had given the Gunners an early lead.

More shocking defending from Sokratis and Mustafi allowed Roberto Firmino to waltz through to make it 2-1 before another error from Lichtsteiner led to Liverpool taking a 3-1 lead en route to a resounding 5-1 victory over a beleaguered Arsenal side.

It’s safe to say the entire Arsenal team were well below par yesterday but some fans have vented their anger at Lichtsteiner with the Swiss international being savaged on social media.

One fan labelled him a ‘terrible footballer’ after comparing him to former Arsenal defenders Sebastien Squillaci and Andre Santos while another supporter described Lichtsteiner’s performance against Liverpool as ‘shocking’.

Another fan claimed the full-back is ‘a million miles off the pace’ in the Premier League while many disgruntled supporters called for the player to leave Arsenal or simply retire.

While it might be harsh to lay all blame at Lichtsteiner for Arsenal’s heavy defeat on Saturday it’s clear the former Juventus defender has struggled to adapt since joining the Gunners on a free last summer and Unai Emery is going to need to find an upgrade at the end of the season.
