Tottenham winger Gareth Bale thinks the sale of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri has caused serious damage to Arsenal’s hopes of finishing in the top four.
“Arsenal have lost a few players, which makes them more beatable I think as that has damaged the way they play,” Bale said.
“We exposed that. I think keeping your best players is a massive thing. They are used to how you play and what you do. It is vitally important to do that and build your team around them.
“It is important that we have (Modric), and Arsenal were unlucky not to keep theirs.”
He said: “They are still a great team. They haven’t had the best of starts but I am sure they will improve.
“They have a lot of young players who are going to grow up in the next season or two and learn a lot. I am sure they will be fine.”
