Arsenal technical director Edu is set to face increasing pressure to make a change in the dugout.
Arsenal have lost their first three games of a league season for the first time since the 1954/55 campaign – and the time may have come for a change of manager. Mikel Arteta started his time in charge of Arsenal strongly after being appointed as Unai Emery’s permanent successor in December 2019. But it has now almost reached a point of no return.
Arteta has faced an unprecedented 20 months in charge of the Gunners.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected every single club but it seems Arsenal have felt the effects of it the most.
Arteta was briefly able to get a tune out of his players and a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang-inspired side won the FA Cup just over a year ago.
But the team that beat Chelsea on that day seems light-years away.
Arsenal have spent more than any other club in the Premier League this summer.
However, many believe they haven’t even strengthened their starting XI.
Arsenal fans can no longer chant for their club to spend money – it’s just been spent in the wrong places.
The performance against Brentford on the opening day of the season was not helped by several star players being struck down by COVID-19.
Arteta has been unable to field his strongest XI this season so defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City were expected.
But the alarming gap between Arsenal and their now former rivals continues to increase.
There are a host of players who should not be anywhere near Arsenal’s first team.
How Sead Kolasinac starts in a back three away at the reigning champions is beyond any supporter.
