Bacary Sagna slammed Arsenal following their abysmal 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at the Emirates on Sunday.

The Gunners fell to their second straight defeat of the season as goals from Romelu Lukaku and Reece James gave Chelsea their season's first London derby win. Arsenal have spent over £130m this summer, which is more than any other Premier League club so far during the transfer window, and Sagna has hit out at the club for spending so much on young players.

He told former Gunner Emmanuel Petit on RMC Sport: "When I watch Arsenal now, honestly, I know that they are going to lose the majority of the time, that something is going to happen, that we are going to concede a stupid goal.

"How can you spend €150million and only bring in young players? It might be good for the future, but someone has got to think about the present. When I was playing, anyone would be excited to join Arsenal, now we have lost our DNA."

Sagna also claimed that the younger players at Arsenal won't listen to the experienced stars at the club for not winning titles.

He said: "Maybe we have players with character but they have won nothing. Today, you know how youngsters are, some older player tells them what to do. They say, "well, what have you won?". A player who has won titles barely has to speak to be listened to."

The Gunners face Manchester City away in their next league match, and could be facing the prospect of yet another loss, which could leave them in the relegation zone on the league table.
