Evra slams Arsenal mentality after ten-man Gunners lose again against Burnley

Arsenal's attitude was slammed by Patrice Evra after they again had a man sent-off in their defeat against Burnley.

The Gunners' terrible run of form continues and they have now lost four Premier League games on the bounce at home.

Granit Xhaka's dismissal in the second-half gave the Clarets the perfect opportunity.

And Arsenal can count themselves lucky that Mohamed Elneny escaped a red card for violent conduct.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has struggled massively this term, put through his own net from a corner.

But Evra took aim at the Gunners mentality, rather than their lack of goals.

He said on Sky Sports: "I feel sad for the Arsenal fans but not for the Arsenal players. They deserve to be where they are.

"Their religion doesn't allow them to score goals and when you don't score you don't win, but I would focus more on their attitude. Before it was Pepe and today it was Xhaka.

"There is a lack of discipline about Arsenal and Arteta must be fuming right now."

He also singled out Xhaka, who he believes has now lost the support of even his own fans for a succession of incidents.

"We criticised Pepe so much [when he got sent off] but Xhaka is not the first time.

"I remember even two years ago, I made a comment about Arsenal saying ‘They still look like babies’ and he came out [and said] ‘Patrice Evra, it is not the first time he spoke about us’.

"I remember, the next game he gets substituted and he take off his shirt and he throw it on the floor.

"So, we had enough of Xhaka. I think Arsenal fans have had enough of him.”
