Jamie Carragher hits out at Oxlade-Chamberlain on Twitter after post-match interview

Jamie Carragher was a hard-nosed defender during his career, and he carries a very similar mentality to his punditry duties.

The Liverpool legend is certainly not afraid to tell it like it is and when he is partnered with Gary Neville in the Sky Sports studio, you can normally guarantee some first-class insight.

He didn't need a studio for his insight on Saturday afternoon, though, instead the former England international took to Twitter to share the thoughts on the game between Arsenal and West Brom.

And he took aim at Gunners midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Ox was deployed in the middle of the park for Arsene Wenger's men on an afternoon where both #WengerOut and #WengerIn banners soared over the Hawthorns.

On the pitch, things didn't go according to plan. Arsenal slipped to five points off the pace with the top four after falling 3-1 to the Baggies, and two set-piece goals by Craig Dawson proved to be their undoing.

However, the manner of the third goal and Oxlade-Chamberlain's part in it is what has irked Carragher.

Arsenal's No.15 gave a post-match interview where he apoligised to the fans for such an abysmal performance, but Carragher tweeted: "Will Oxlaide mention he should've been stronger & blocked Dawson for the 3rd from the corner rather than talking about someone heading it?!!"

Carragher is referring to the way Dawson was allowed to run through the heart of Arsenal's marking defenders and hammer home the third, and the Ox had every opportunity to block his path but, instead, chose to lambast his other teammates following the goal.

The pressure on Wenger is now at an all-time high and the Frenchman said in a post-match press conference that he has made up his mind on his future and will let everyone know soon.

Given Arsenal's perilous decline, it's hard to imagine he is considering staying.
