Arteta admits Guendouzi issue after latest Arsenal axing and claims ‘nothing has changed’ since he was first dropped


MIKEL ARTETA has warned Matteo Guendouzi “some things have to change” if the midfielder is to have an Arsenal future.

The 21-year-old was axed from the squad for the third straight game tonight as the Gunners romped past Norwich 4-0.

Former Paris Saint-Germain ace Guendouzi has not played since he grabbed Brighton striker Neal Maupay by the throat in his team’s 2-1 defeat on the South Coast a fortnight ago.

It was also then hinted that the youngster bragged about earning more than Brighton’s stars during the tempestuous clash.

Since then speculation has mounted the Frenchman could leave the Emirates once the transfer window re-opens.

And his manager has told him he needs to make some major changes if he is to be restored to his team.

When quizzed why Guendouzi was left out again, Arteta said: “It is the same reasons as last week.

“Some things have to change and nothing has changed.”

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang helped himself to a double as the Gunners earned a third straight victory in all competitions.

The Gabon striker opened the scoring before adding another after Granit Xhaka’s strike had made it three.

Cedric then put the icing on the cake by adding a fourth late on his debut.
