FEELING OF BURNING
Nigel Winterburn warned Arsenal’s flops that they weren’t too good for the descent.
The former Topnik left-back was part of the West Ham star team that was relegated in 2003.
And the two-time 1997-98 winner worries they could now follow his old Hammers team.
Speaking after the launch of the free fantastic football jackpot game Fantasy5, Winterburn said: “When I left Arsenal and went to West Ham in my last season we had a fantastic team – but we were knocked out.
“But we couldn’t win the football game. If you come out with all the good intentions, you may be playing well for a start, and you can’t achieve and boost that confidence.
“Suddenly you get an individual foul or you turn off a player and your back is turned against the wall and you continue not to win the game.
“It simply came to our notice then in West Ham. I see similar things happening at Arsenal.
“They have to achieve two victories, very, very fast. It’s not good to say ‘We only have 14 games, there’s time’.
“You can see that confidence is leaving this team.
“They’re rehearsals, almost like waiting for something to happen to react, something against them, instead of dictating the show.
“It’s very, very worrying because they don’t score a lot of goals. If Aubameyang doesn’t score, I don’t know who he is. “
