It is no longer news that Arsenal have remained a mid-table team this season. The Gunners have, however, been on form in the Europa league but have been seen struggling in domestic matches.
Arteta’s men kept a clean record of winning all their group matches in the Europa League but the reverse have been the case in the Premier League.
Fresh legs have however, been introduced into the squad and the likes of Odegaard, Partey and even Emile Smith Rowe have been given a chance to feature in their League matches.
Partey has reportedly been battling with injuries since his inception at Arsenal.
Arsenal put up a disappointing first half with the Hammers which saw them conceding 3 goals in less than 35 minutes to in-formed West Ham. Thanks to Lacazette for the 2 goals plus an own goal which saw them equalize just before full-time.
As the international break sets in, key players have traveled to their respective countries for their home matches. One can only pray they don’t get injured or contact Corona Virus in the process.
All things being equal, Arteta must put in great effort to salvage the club from playing a show season come next season without featuring in any European competition.
Seemingly from the look of things, Arsenal may not be able to qualify for any European Competition through the league but there’s still hope for Arteta and his men if he can pull through the Europa League by winning it.
The last time Arsenal got to the Europa League finals, they were defeated by Chelsea with Oliver Giroud with a stunning goal.
All hope is gone but if you ask me, Arsenal has dropped from being a big team to being an underdog.
