​Redknapp - Arsenal full of passengers

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp analyses that too many Arsenal players acted as passengers in the Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Tottenham.

Redknapp specifically criticised Mesut Ozil for his performance in the defeat at White Hart Lane.

"I want to mention Eriksen and on the flip side look at Mesut Ozil today," Redknapp said on Super Sunday.

"They are very similar players, both of them are what you would call, in a nice way, luxury players. They are the sort of players that can open the door and you don't expect them to put too much hard work in."

"But when I looked at Ozil compared to Eriksen there was such a distinct difference between the two in terms of work ethic and pressing and the amount of times Eriksen won the ball back for his team, but also got involved in open play."

"At times there were passengers and you can't have passengers in these north London derbies."

"In the team Thierry Henry played in you had no passengers whatsoever. There was too many and they have to change that next year."

"There are too many players that look comfortable in that red and white shirt that don't deserve to be in it."

"Just not good enough and not only that, not trying hard enough."
