Europa League: Martin Keown slams Arsenal's 'unprofessional' performance in defeat against Olympiakos
Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has criticised the team for their “unprofessional” performance in Thursday’s Europa League defeat by Olympiakos Piraeus, which knocked them out of the competition.

Arsene Wenger has grown used to defending himself in recent years but the Arsenal manager's grip on his position has never seemed less secure ahead of Sunday's clash with Brighton.
