Arsenal players are said to have turned on star trio Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shkodran Mustafi in the aftermath of their disappointing 2-1 defeat to Brighton at the Amex last weekend.
The Gunners have now lost four games in a row and it seems that their under fire manager Arsene Wenger has a battle on his hands to restore harmony in the dressing room after an explosive argument broke out following their defeat to Chris Hughton’s men.
According to a report in the Sun, Ozil was lambasted by team-mates for going missing in big games. January signing Henrik Mkhitaryan also came in for heavy criticism from his new colleagues for not tracking runners, something that also infuriated his previous manager at Manchester United Jose Mourinho.
During the heated row £35 million centre-back Shkodran Mustafi was also called out for constantly blaming other players for his own mistakes.
Arsenal currently sit in sixth position in the Premier League, and look destined to finish in their lowest league position in over 20 years.
Their only realistic chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season is via the Europa League. Arsene Wenger’s men will face AC Milan this Thursday in the quarter final, although in their current form it would take a brave man to back them to win the competition.
