EPL He’s mistake-prone – Agbonlahor slams Arsenal star. After Arsenal’s 3-1 Premier League loss to championship challenger Manchester City on Wednesday, former Aston Villa forward Gabriel Agbonlahor criticized Arsenal’s Gabriel Magalhaes.
With goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Jack Grealish, and Erling Haaland, Pep Guardiola’s team returned to the top of the standings, handing the Gunners their first home Premier League loss of the season.
Agbonlahor criticized Gabriel on talkSPORT for Arsenal’s defensive lapses, which the Cityzens took advantage of to punish Mikel Arteta’s team.
“Many errors from Arsenal. The first [Takehiro] Tomiyasu incident had place. Grealish is pressuring him, but he is blind to Kevin De Bruyne’s breakaway. Gabriel is the one who, in my opinion, you always suspect has a flaw since you watch him every time.
The former Premier League player added: “It is just poor defending all around from him, giving the ball away at times where you shouldn’t be.” The former Premier League player also blamed the Brazilian for the penalty against Haaland, which Arsenal were fortunate the VAR overturned because the Norwegian was offside, and the goal that Haaland later scored.
