Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Sunday heaped further pressure on beleaguered boss Arsene Wenger. The veteran manager is responsible for the club’s alarming decline but the problems now facing the next manager look hard to fix.
The Brighton side who for the records, have never had more than six shots on target in a Premier League game, had just 32 minutes to step out of their condemnation against Arsenal on Sunday, and end up scoring twice in the process.
In the end, a 2-1 defeat seemed like a lucky escape given the ineptitude of Arsenal’s first-half performance but can Arsene Wenger ever escape this criticism? Not to talk of appalling result of the away matches, the Gunners have now lost four games in a row in all competitions for the first time in 16 years – one of which was to an underrated Swedish side FK Ostersunds.
A new manager with a fresh outlook would be expected to coax more from this group but a long more will the north London side have to wait? If not, can a player be picked out of the current Arsenal first eleven to bring about another era of the Thierry Henry days? What solution does Arsenal to get fixed from this trophy drought?
