Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger slams Premier League for VAR delay

Kenedy of Newcastle United celebrates after scoring his sides second goal during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Southampton at St. James Park

"If you're a defender you can not allow yourself to do that. Still feel you're capable of finishing above Burnley", - Match of the Day host and former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker fired over a sarcastic tweet as his former rivals sit sixth in the table and just two points above the Clarets.

Kenedy, who had struggled to get himself into the game before the break, belatedly started to make an impression and Benitez sent on loan signing Islam Slimani in place of Gayle as he looked for a victor. The team has had a sensational second half of the season.

The win moved Newcastle on to 41 points, while defeat left the Gunners 13 points off the top four with only 15 to play for.

Newcastle were the better side after the break and took the lead in the 68th minute when Matt Ritchie fired home after a neat flick from Perez.

It's bewildering how a player can be so inconsistent.

The Arsenal fan and former player coming out with some pretty odd reasoning. "It worked", Wenger added, implying this was no longer the case. But he continues to make fundamental errors that an already fragile defence simply can't cope with.

"But I felt overall today the fact we played on Thursday night, in the second half we couldn't raise the tempo and keep it up in the first half".

Massimiliano Allegri insists he is "happy" at Juventus
It also finished goalless in the Rome derby as Lazio and Roma remained third and fourth in the table respectively. We will still need to meet some objectives.

And serious questions must also be asked about the Arsenal coaching staff, who have completely failed to develop a player who was a Germany worldwide when he arrived.

Arsenal supporters just want to count the trophies and they would take Sam Allardyce, never mind Rafa Benitez, if it meant winning the Premier League.

Benitez's teams are organised, conservative even, but is that level of organisation not exactly what Arsenal have been crying out for in the last few years?

"They need someone with longevity, somebody who will get a four or five year contract and stay there".

But it's time to admit that the £35m simply wasn't money well spent, and start from scratch.

One glance at Shkodran Mustafi's performances this season alone should be enough to convince anyone that Arsenal are sorely lacking in defensive organisation.
