Former Liverpool defender and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has slammed Arsenal for their poor away form this season and has stated that he stands by his previous statement in which he called the Arsenal players as cowards.
Last season, after Arsenal suffered an away defeat against Crystal Palace, Carragher called them cowards. The Gunners' away form has not improved this season, with them winning just thrice away from home in the Premier League.
Their latest defeat was against Tottenham at Wembley and now, Carragher has slammed them, terming their away form as embarrassing. The north London side have picked up just 26 points from their last 26 matches away from home.

As reported by the Telegraph, Carragher said,
He justified, "If you go back to Crystal Palace last season, I called them "cowards" and sometimes when you look back you can think it’s a bit strong. But those (away form) stats back me up.
He continued, "I think (top four) is virtually impossible for them. They are not catching Manchester United. It's very difficult to catch Liverpool because of the points gap.
