Craig Burley says it is Arsenal’s midfield, not defence, that is holding Unai Emery’s side back

Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley has picked out Arsenal’s midfield as the major reason why they cannot compete with Liverpool or Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Gunners have made a hit-and-miss start to the season, but it has been good enough to see them sitting in third place in the table after eight games.
Victory over Bournemouth on Sunday saw Unai Emery’s side climb to the impressive position, although due to the lacklustre nature of most sides in the division, they have needed just 15 points from eight games to do so.
Burley, who also played for Celtic and Derby among others, is impressed with the attacking options available to Emery, and feels the defence is improving, but has highlighted the midfield as a why they cannot bridge the gap to Liverpool and City, who sit first and second.
‘I?m not sold on Arsenal, no,’ Burley told ESPN FC.

‘But, I?m not sold on anyone apart from Liverpool or Man City, and City at the moment are having a glitch by their standards.
‘They?ve got two excellent strikers, one who is out injured at the moment – [Alexandre] Lacazette – and [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang looks as if he?s going to have a good return of goals again. ‘They?ve got some good youngsters, and it looks like Unai Emery is going to give them some game time, he?s given them their head, and you saw it with young [Gabriel] Martinelli in midweek.
‘I don?t like the middle of the park, I just don?t like it.
‘And I agree, once [Kieran] Tierney and [Hector] Bellerin get up to full speed, he?ll get a better sense and we?ll get a better sense of what his back four is.
‘Having those two full-backs should help him, they should help him.’
Arsenal’s midfield trio against Bournemouth consisted of Mateo Guendouzi, Dani Ceballos and Granit Xhaka.
Bellerin and Tierney have both made their returns from injury, but neither has appeared in the Premier League yet this season.
With the international break this weekend, both the Spaniard and the Scot could make their first league appearances of the campaign on Monday 21 October when Arsenal travel to South Yorkshire to take on Sheffield United.
Lacazette is unlikely to be available for that match as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury, but could be fit by the end of the month.
