#ArtetaOut! Gunners Boss Under Fire Again After Nightmare Start To The Season

We may be just two games into the new Premier League season, but already Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is facing calls to be sacked. 

It came after the Gunners’ 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at the Emirates, which followed their opening day loss to Brentford by the same scoreline.

This means Arsenal have now lost their first two league games without scoring for the first time in their history. 

And with the Gunners set to face champions Man City in their next league match, that unenviable record could be extended to three defeats on the trot unless things improve quickly. 

The two opening defeats have done little to ease the discontent among the Arsenal supporters, who were already unhappy with their club’s eighth place finish last season. 

Almost immediately after the loss to Chelsea the #ArtetaOut hashtag started trending on social media. 

Some sections of supporters (no doubt the ones who booed the team off the pitch at the Emirates) believe the task of guiding a club like Arsenal, is simply too big for the Spaniard. 

Even former Gunners defender Bacary Sagna launched a scathing attack against his former club…saying ‘the DNA of the club is gone’. 

To be fair to Arteta, it may not be entirely his fault that Arsenal have been so bad in recent weeks.  

The squad has been hit by Covid-19 and injuries, which led the manager to say that they’re facing a difficult and unprecedented situation.

But merely knowing that things are bad is not enough…Arteta needs to do something to change their circumstances. 

While it is highly unlikely that Arsenal will sack their boss this early in the season, he needs to make drastic changes quickly to avoid ending up another managerial casualty. 

With recent results not in his favour and the supporters not on his side, time is fast running out for Arteta to prove that he is the right man to lead the club out of their recent crisis.
