This defeat is yet another strike for head coach Mikel Arteta at Arsenal and he will probably not get many more chances to redeem himself. It was earlier being said the former Man City assistant coach will be given the first half of the season and his stay at the club will depend on Arsenal’s performance in those matches. If that speculation is true, Mikel Arteta might have to bid his farewell to the Emirates stadium.
Arsenal losing a Premier League match is always followed by the club being bantered by the fans of rival clubs and today was no different. The fact that they lost to two big clubs straight- Chelsea and Man City, has made the situation even worse for the Arsenal fans who are finding it hard to digest.
