Arsenal experienced 90 minutes of emotional play against Tottenham Hotspur. Mikel Arteta’s team took the lead twice, but the Gunners both lost their advantage. Individual mistakes contributed to Arsenal losing 3 points at Emirates home field.
In Paul Merson’s opinion, midfielder Fabio Vieira was not good enough to start the recent north London derby. Coach Mikel Arteta decided to name Vieira in the starting lineup, replacing Kai Havertz.
Sharing with Sky Sports, Paul Merson gave his opinion: “I am very confident Arsenal will win on Sunday. However, when I look at their starting lineup, I am really worried. Jesus plays on the wing. , Nketiah plays in the slot, Fabio Vieira plays in the main. I don’t think Vieira is good enough. After that, Declan Rice was taken off and Jorginho came on.”
In the context of Kai Havertz not having a convincing enough performance, Vieira has become a bright alternative for Mikel Arteta. However, the Portuguese midfielder caused great disappointment.
The 23-year-old midfielder appeared outmatched in a duel with opposing players. Dismal statistics illustrate Vieira’s poor day: 22 touches, no key passes or shots.
