Houllier slams "dreadful" Arsenal defensive setup

Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier was stunned by Arsenal's woeful defending for their Champions League defeat to AS Monaco.

The Gunners are reeling after a 3-1 first-leg defeat.

Houllier said: "There was a dreadful hole between Arsenal's defensive and attacking midfielders.

"It was as if Monaco found themselves there playing five against two. Monaco had them in a stranglehold."
