Watch: Jamie Carragher Says Arsenal 'Cowards' Are An 'Embarrassment'

Last night's Monday Night Football produced a startling graphic regarding Arsenal's away for in comparison to their rivals. Over their last 26 away games, Arsenal have garnered a woeful 26 points.

In comparison, Man City have 55, Chelsea 53, Man Utd 48, Liverpool 48 and Spurs 44.

Jamie Carragher felt the numbers justified his description of Arsenal as "cowards" last season.

I’ve always questioned Arsenal’s mentality but you’ve always felt they were good enough.

I still question their mentality but they're good enough now. Arsenal are actually getting worse, they're not getting better.

If you go back to Monday Night Football against Palace at the end of last season, I called them "cowards" and maybe afterwards when you calm down a little bit, you reflect and think, 'Maybe that was a little bit strong'. Those (away form) stats back me up.

26 points from 26 away games is an embarrassment for a team who are supposedly one of the top teams in the country.

Carragher added that Arsenal getting into the top four this season is "virtually impossible". Currently, they lie seven points behind fifth placed Spurs and eight points behind Chelsea in fourth.

Carragher also questioned Arsene Wenger's unwillingness to spend big on a defender. Wenger did splash £35 million on Shkodran Mustafi during August 2016. It appears Carragher does not believe that number to be "big" in today's climate.
