Arsenal were held to a 2-2 draw by Fulham at the Emirates today, and Darren Bent is not at all impressed with Kai Havertz’s performance.
The Gunners got off to a terrible start, conceding in the very first minute. We were very, very sloppy, but goals from Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah put us in front in the second half. However, Joao Palhinha levelled the score late in the game to help Fulham take home a point.
Havertz was really poor today.
Darren Bent says Kai Havertz is offering nothing for Arsenal
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta surprised everyone today by starting both Kai Havertz and Leandro Trossard against Fulham.
Both players interchanged positions constantly, but neither had a good game.
Havertz, in particular, was very poor. He got so many things wrong, missed a great chance and just didn’t look like a player who’s worth £65 million.

Like every Arsenal fan, Darren Bent was far from happy with Havertz. He says the German is currently offering nothing to Arteta’s side, and we can’t disagree.
Bent tweeted: “I’ll always back player that play for your club, but Havertz isn’t working in this Arsenal team, the midfield has no balance and right now, he’s offering nothing.”
Today’s result is a really disappointing one, and we’re sure Arteta will be furious after the game.
Almost every player was sloppy in the first half, and despite a dominant period for large parts after the game, we conceded a very cheap goal.
Arsenal take on Manchester United next in what will be a tough test. Arteta just can’t continue to start Havertz, especially with Gabriel Jesus now back and Fabio Vieira producing arguably his best-ever performance for us.
We think Havertz will be dropped when we face United next weekend.
