Gary Neville has claimed he ‘didn’t have’ Robin Koch ‘chasing Lacazette all over the pitch’ during Leeds United’s 4-1 loss at Elland Road on Saturday, as he told Sky Sports during his comment period.

The Sky pundit says that if it were Lionel Messi, he would understand Koch would go this long to mark the player, but not Lacazette.

Just before Bukayo Saka could add Arsenal’s third of the evening, Koch closely followed Lacazette into the opposition half, before returning to central defense as the visitors moved the ball to the other flank.

By the time he could return, Saka was running towards the Leeds defense from the right channel and he eventually put the game to bed after he was allowed some disorganized rear-end effort. of Leeds to score.

Neville has been very critical of the Leeds man’s actions and what Marcelo Bielsa has asked his team to do.

“That’s what happens when your centre-back isn’t there,” Neville said. “Koch on this side has lost his place. The way that Saka and Martinelli have isolated the full-backs and run into those huge gaps.

“I just don’t see the benefit of Koch going, leaving his space and chasing Lacazette all over the pitch. Then leave a lot for the defenders to do.

“It’s like an under-9 team defending. Five and six of them try to protect all at once.

“I don’t have to talk about how Marcelo Bielsa plays the game but I don’t have that, not against Lacazette. If it’s an excellent player in front who can turn, receive the ball and run towards you. Messi or someone like that. then you’ll want to go in and mark the man. But Lacazette is pulling in the Leeds centre-backs, who are leaving huge gaps and they’re not good enough to fill them.”

After conceding seven goals last time, what Leeds wanted was some kind of reaction.

While the Elland Road followers tried their best to get their players through, they were knocked out, time after time, yesterday.

In fact, if Arsenal have scored seven goals, then no one will complain because they have beaten the injury opponent brilliantly and really.
