Arsenal have been knocked out of the UEFA Europa League by Portuguese Giants, Sporting Lisbon on penalties, Below are the players that who be blamed for Arsenal's exit from the Europa League;
The Portuguese midfielder had zero impact on the game compared to the first leg in which he contributed to the North London outfit 2-2 draw against Lisbon, he was poor all through the minutes he was on the pitch, gave away the possession cheaply on several occasions, slow with the ball at his feets and couldn't complete passes.
The Ex-Chelsea midfielder was guilty for a lot of misplaced passes tonight, struggled to hold on to the ball and failed to create anything meaningful in the centre of the park for the Gunners.
The Ex-Manchester City defender had a poor game in defence, instead of him to overlap and deliver crosses into the box for his attackers, he was busy doing the wrong thing of cutting into midfield and doing nothing meaningful with the ball.
Was kept on the back foot & tormented by Sporting Lisbon attacker, Edwards.
Missed a crucial penalty that cost the Gunners a place in the next round of the Europa League.
The England goalkeeper was caught off guard by Pedro Goncalves from the half way line as a result of his lack of concentration and unnecessary movements.
