Garth Crooks during the Chelsea game: Matteo Guendouzi has ‘killed’ Arsenal

Garth Crooks on Arsenal’s Matteo Guendouzi

A tweet from Football London’s Charles Watts ‏has gained plenty of attention following the Chelsea game.

Watts has reported on the views of Garth Crooks towards Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi.

It seems like the BBC reporter is not a fan of the Arsenal youngster as the following was reported:

Had Garth Crooks sat a couple of rows behind me in the press room yesterday after the game constantly telling his mate that Guendouzi was ‘killing Arsenal’ and that Wenger would never have played him as he isn’t good enough.

The reason many people are paying attention to this is because Garth Crooks has the job of selecting the Premier League team of the week on the BBC website.

That’s lead to some comedy responses on Twitter about the BBC journalist.

Guendouzi & Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was guilty of missing a couple of glorious opportunities in the Chelsea game.

On one occasion in the first half, Aubameyang skied a shot over the bar when he seemed certain to score.

Many on social media are sharing how Guendouzi reacted to Aubameyang’s miss.

The 19-year-old, who was playing second division French football last year with Lorient, fell to the floor to get out his frustrations.
