Arsenal: Arteta failing as Gunners manager!!

Arsenal started the season with 2 straight wins but have dropped off the pace with their latest run being 4 defeats and 1 draw, only taking 1 point out of a possible 15 points. For the gunners latest home game they welcomed Burnley to the Emirates but suffered a 1-0 loss, Burnley have only secured 6 points from 11 games. Arsenal are still sitting 5 points above the relegation zone after their latest defeat.

Mikel Arteta’s future is currently under question because of the performance of his Arsenal squad. He joined Arsenal in December 2019 taking over from Unai Emery, he has expressed that he knows criticism will come his way and has got to accept that.

Arteta said: "This is our reality right now and we have to face it by being brave, fighting and no one giving up. It's not time to hide - it's time to put your face and your body on the line.

"At the moment, I'm sorry, but we have to take the bullets. We are not winning football matches and you have to put your chest there. Hit me, because you have the right to hit me because we are not winning.

"It's natural. I accept it and it's part of the job. When you are not getting results, it's the manager who has maximum responsibility. That's why I accept because you can say whatever you want to explain, but at the end, you have to win football matches.

"This club is too big to accept this many losses in the last weeks. My chest is here - hit me, guys."

Arsenal? A relegation possibility!!

Due to Arsenal’s current form relegation is a possibility but the Gunners haven’t been in the second tier of English football since the start of the 1900s. Arteta is under a lot of pressure to get Arsenal back to winning ways but all the blame can’t be put on the Ex Spanish international, his top striker, Aubameyang, isn’t on form or putting the ball in the back of the net.

Arsenal hasn’t lost 4 games in a row since 1959, and they hadn’t lost against Burnley in top-flight English football since 1974. This is Arsenal lowest-scoring start to a season since 1981.
