Arsenal took Old Trafford (0-1) on November 1 banishing one of their traumas: winning away a rival from the Big Six.
They hadn’t done it since January 2015 (0-2 at City). “We have to trust the project. Arteta is building something nice,” confessed a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who drove with his goal to some ‘gunners’ who were placed four points behind leaders Liverpool.
A turning point … negative. “We are going through many difficulties, but I don’t think about giving up. I have to be positive believe try to correct mistakes, and stay strong,” said an Arteta who is in trouble. Although his position is not in danger (for now), Arsenal has entered a destructive spiral that chains him to the lower zone.
The ‘Gunners’ accumulate seven days without winning and are fifteenth, 11 points behind Europe and only four above relegation. “When you are in this position and you have these points, you have to be careful. We are not used to it,” Arteta stressed. Since 1914-15 they have not competed in Second. They have 96 consecutive seasons of record in the elite, but the specter of relegation already haunts them. Worst start in 46 years Their 14 points in 14 acts are the club’s worst start since 1974-75 when they added 12 – moving them to three points for a current win – and finished sixteenth. “The results are not good and not acceptable by the standards of this club,” declared a Spanish coach who arrived a year ago to replace Fredrik Ljungberg, who had taken the place of Unai Emery.
They finished in the 2019-20 eighths their worst position since they were twelfth in 1994-95- they were left without Champions for the fourth consecutive year with Wenger they added 19 consecutive seasons in the groups! but they won the FA Cup by getting into Europe. They started this campaign by raising the Community but they are failing in the League. Not in the Europa League where they have passed with full offensive problems The powder of their cannons is wet. The same thing has happened to us in recent weeks. We dominate the game we have chances but we missed the last shot or pass and we ended up falling for details said Arteta after losing (2-1) against Everton.
The Gunners are the fourth least performing team in the Premier: they have only scored 12 goals. The poor figures of the injured Aubameyang and Lacazette three goals each in Liga weigh them down. Arsenal has been unmarked in six games and has only left their goal to zero in three. They do not dominate the areas and the result is that they have lost eight games! in 14 days. The previous two seasons fell by 10 league-wide. Dispatch Changes Wenger’s departure in 2018 after more than two decades caused a catharsis in the team. Arsenal has been moving away from the head of the Premier financially burdened by the construction of the Emirates. The American businessman Stan Kroenke has owned a club since 2018 that was left by Ivan Gazidis’s historic CEO Gunner and of which the Spanish Raül Sanllehí was the head of the football direction until August when Vinai Venkatesham assumed his role with Edu as sports director. Arsenal has spent 327 million euros since 2018 on irregular signings -Pépé, David Luiz, Tierney, Willian …-. In two years they have invested a third of what Wenger in 22 (964).
