Former Arsenal favourite Frank McLintock believes that the Gunners are going backwards and are in dire need for changes in the January transfer window.

The north Londoners have picked up two points from their last nine games and have dropped to 10th in the Premier League.

“It doesn’t look good at the moment,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “As a club they’ve gone backwards.

“They used to be referred to as a big club along with Man United, Chelsea and clubs like that.

“Now Arsenal get discarded in those sort of conversations, people say it’s going to be Man City or Man United [who are going to win the Premier League]. Arsenal don’t even get mentioned anymore.”
