Jamie Redknapp says it’s in the DNA of Arsenal defence to give goals away

Jamie Redknapp says making mistakes that lead to goals is in the DNA of the Arsenal defence, after a clanger in the defeat by Tottenham.

The Gunners were 1-0 up and in command of the north London derby before Sead Kolainac inexplicably played through Son Heung-min to score.

Jamie Redknapp said on Sky Sports: "Arsenal's back three will always give you a chance. It's a fact. They're defending better but they can't help it, it's in their DNA right now.

"But for Spurs, it was all about getting three points.

"There was some moments that went their way but they looked dangerous enough and you thought something might go their way and it’s a brilliant header from [Toby] Alderweireld.

"That's what leaders do and you need people like him to stand up when you have a difficult period."

On Spurs showing signs of improvement, he added: "It was a performance of a team struggling for a little bit of confidence, Arsenal had the ball for long periods and Spurs had to play on the counter-attack, but at least they looked dangerous.

"They just looked like a bit more of an attacking threat."
