Gilberto questions Arsenal bottle ahead of Chelsea clash

Former Arsenal captain Gilberto Silva has questioned the bottle of the current team.

Gilberto, now with Panathinaikos, wonders if there is anyone in the Gunners squad capable of taking a game by the scruff of the neck when it matters.

"There is a moment when you need somebody who can take the responsibility," he says. "Those guys have learnt a lot and I'm sure they don't feel it at this time. When things are right everyone can play, make a tackle, make a good pass, score a goal, but when the pressure is there you need somebody to calm things down. Somebody with experience who's seen it all before. I don't know if it's a problem, but I think in the past few years the team is missing that."
