Gary Neville labels Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil 'a disgrace'

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville was highly critical of Arsenal's "spineless'' display as they were crushed 3-0 in the Carabao Cup final by Manchester City.

Neville, working as a commentator for Sky Sports, labelled Shkodran Mustafi's positioning for Sergio Aguero's opener as "pathetic'' and then went after Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil.

"Ramsey. Xhaka. Ozil. You're walking on a football pitch at Wembley,'' he said. "Why are you walking? You're a disgrace. An absolute disgrace.

Mesut Ozil was criticised for his performance in Arsenal's first-leg draw with Atletico Madrid.
Mesut Ozil was one of a number of Arsenal players Gary Neville criticised after Sunday's Carabao Cup final.

"I don't even want to talk about them because they've been an absolute disgrace. Ramsey and Xhaka walking on a football pitch. Absolutely spineless.''

He added: "I don't even like the football anymore. The last bastion has gone. Liverpool play better, Tottenham play better -- there's three or four teams that play better football than them now.

"This is a dark, dark day -- the team have just not shown up.''

Neville was not the only one left unimpressed by the performance of Arsene Wenger's men.

TV personality Piers Morgan tweeted: "We've given up. I wonder howmany goals we'd have to lose by to force Wenger out - 8? 9? Double figures?''

Fellow Arsenal fan, golfer Ian Poulter, posted: "Seriously what the is Mustafi doing today... he has a quadruple bogey and 3 triple bogeys and 3 double bogeys and 7 bogeys... @Arsenal are having a nightmare...''
