Paul Merson has ripped into Arsenal after his former side fell to seventh in the Premier League table.

The Gunners were held to a 0-0 draw by lowly West Ham on Wednesday, which came after their 1-1 draw with Southampton at the weekend.

Seeing Arsenal fall behind Burnley, Merson told Sky Sports: ‘Nothing has changed at Arsenal. We are 17 games into the season and they are below Burnley. That is embarrassing.

‘You can understand after five or six games, if someone gets off to a flying start, but this is 17 games in.’
