Martin Tyler and Gary Neville slammed for being anti-Arsenal by Invincibles legend Martin Keown
Martin Keown slammed Martin Tyler and Gary Neville for their ‘biased’ commentary against Arsenal.
Gunners legend Keown was unhappy with some of the comments made by Tyler and former Manchester United star Gary Neville during their defeat to Brighton.
Arsenal‘s Premier League title hopes are all but over after they were thrashed 3-0 to the Seagulls at the Emirates.
One of the incidents Keown particularly took an issue with is the debate surrounding Martinelli and whether he should have been sent off early in the game.
“How biased the Sky Sports commentary team is? It is frightening,” he told White and Jordan on talkSPORT.
“Martin Tyler is a great professional, but he cannot hide that it hurts him that Arsenal might win a game of football.
“Honestly, we know [Gary] Neville has a problem, he is almost apologising.
“‘Have I lost my mind? We should be sending Martinelli off’? Not at all, you go with your instinct.
“So, there we are, it is a poke in the eye to a commentator. I should be more respectful, Martin is a great commentator, but please, Sky, don’t put him on the Arsenal games anymore.
“It is a really hard listen.”
Keown continued: “We talked about it off air and certain people were pushing me to say it. I didn’t really want to come here with that.”
Host Jim White said: “Nobody pushed you to say it.”
Simon Jordan added : “You lassoed me out there asking about Martin Tyler and Gary Neville.”
Keown said: “Tell me then, get the Arsenal fans as they’ve got to listen to it. There’s only 60,000 in the stadium but there’s millions of us listening at home.”
White: “So you think he’s anti-Arsenal?”
Keown replied: “Yes I do, let’s get it out there.”
Arsenal knew they had to win but the visitors were excellent and opened the scoring through Julio Enciso early in the second half.
Substitute Deniz Undav doubled the lead before Pervis Estupinan grabbed a late third to leave Arsenal four points behind Manchester City, having played a game more.
Meanwhile, Brighton can still make it into the top four as they prepare to play four more games.
