After Manchester City’s 6-0 demolition over Chelsea yesterday, ex-Liverpool centre back Jamie Carragher laid into Maurizio Sarri’s side comparing them to Arsenal.
He said: “It’s only halfway through Sarri’s first season but the worst thing I can say is it looks like he has turned Chelsea into Arsenal.
“The Arsenal team that has got battered away from home in the last seven or eight years because they have been too weak. You couldn’t say that about Chelsea in the past, but this looks like a weak team.
It seems Carragher’s comments reflect more upon the Arsenal team at the end of Arsene Wenger’s reign opposed to Unai Emery’s team now.
Was Carragher’s comments uncalled for or fair?
Arsenal fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions:

Carragher and all them pundits can poke fun at Arsenal and Wenger but fact still remains Arsenal have been a more successful team in the last 20 years over Liverpool. 🤷🏽♂️

Jamie Carragher says “Sarri has turned Chelsea into Arsenal” following their 6-0 defeat to Manchester City
Last year Liverpool lost 5-0 to Manchester City…

You know what, I respected Carragher as a player and at times as a pundit. To say that Sarri has turned Chelsea into Arsenal shows a complete lack of class. Lest we forget, we have Premier League titles and Liverpool have none. Alongside that, we aren’t doing too bad either.
