West Brom hero Thomas: Arsenal not that good these days

West Bromwich Albion winger Jerome Thomas has had a dig at the current Arsenal squad.

Thomas was outstanding against his old club for Saturday's win.

He said: "When I was there Robert Pires, Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry were in front of me. Now the standard, no disrespect to the Arsenal team, is not as high.

"I chose to leave. I was offered another year's contract, I wasn't released. There was no regrets, I don't hold any bad feeling.

"You can't put a price on the education I got at Arsenal which is why you can never be bitter when it's time to move on."
