'Arsenal are looking after themselves too much' – Adams calls for pampered Gunners to toughen up

Now without a win in eight matches across all competitions, the former Gunners skipper says mentalities need to change in north London

Someone needs to give Arsenal players a 'shake' and tell them to stop waiting for things to happen on the pitch, Tony Adams has said, with the former club captain of the opinion that the current squad are 'looking after themselves a little too much' and need to be braver.

The Gunners are currently on a streak of nine matches without a win in all competitions following their match with Brighton at the Emirates on Thursday, the hosts having fallen to a 2-1 defeat courtesy of goals from Adam Webster and Neal Maupay.
