Patrice Evra slams Arsenal "babies" in damning assessment of Sheffield United defeat

Mirror Online Sports 1 month ago

Patrice Evra has launched a damning assessment of Arsenal's mentality and labelled them "babies" after losing 1-0 to Sheffield United.

The Gunners missed out on the chance to move up to third in the Premier League as they drew a blank against the newly-promoted Blades.

Evra revealed he always referred to the club as "his babies" and was "so happy to play against Arsenal " as he "knew" he would always win during his time as a Manchester United player.

He even recalled a tale where he welcomed Robin van Persie to a "man's club" when he made the move from the Emirates to Old Trafford.

And in a scathing attack of Unai Emery's side, in which he also took aim at Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka, he claimed nothing has changed from the final days under Arsene Wenger.

Evra launched a scathing attack and branded Arsenal his "babies"

Speaking after the game on Sky Sports, Evra said: "First of all, I'm really happy for Sheffield. They deserved the win, but I'm not surprised about Arsenal.

"I used to call them my babies 10 years ago and they're still, when I look at them, my babies and that's the truth.

"I'm not being disrespectful when I say that, it's just the feeling I've got with this team.

"They look pretty, they look good, but they don't look like a winning team.

"They're just here playing good football.

Arsenal were beaten 1-0 on a miserable night at Bramall Lane

"When I looked at Arsenal, I was so happy to play against Arsenal because I knew I was going to win.

"Even when Robin van Persie came, and the first time I shook his hand, I said 'welcome to a man's club'.

"At the beginning he was upset but after one month he said, 'you're completely right, Patrice' and that's my feeling.

"Guendouzi, he's playing the best in midfield, but he's a player who was playing in the second league in France and even then he was not playing regularly and he's the best player on this team.

Evra says nothing has changed under Emery compared to the days of Arsene Wenger

"I know some legends, they are fuming when they see that Xhaka is the captain of Arsenal.

"I respect them, Aubameyang and Lacazette, but you can see that if those guys don't score goals they are in trouble and nothing has changed.

"I'm like 'where is Arsene? Where is Wenger?' It's the same!"
