Chelsea signed Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City on transfer deadline day as the midfielder was Chelsea’s last signing of the summer.
Drinkwater made his mark in the Premier League two seasons ago after helping the Foxes to win their first ever title, and his partnership with N’Golo Kante in midfield made Leicester a powerful team in that campaign.
Former Arsenal star Paul Merson is angry his former club didn’t at least try to beat Chelsea to the signing of Drinkwater.
He said: “Arsenal should have bid for Danny Drinkwater rather than let him go to Chelsea. At least he will fight for you. This lot just give up.
“In my day, the dressing room after a performance like that would have been a war zone. You would have had to call the police because there would have been fights everywhere.”
