Arsenal face Chelsea on Boxing day and Alley Sport is here with Arsenal Predicted lineup vs Chelsea as the Gunners look to regain form as they are the only team who have lost lesser games than Sheffield United who sit at the bottom of the league.
Arsenal have lost eight games this season and are winless in last five games ,and to add to this misery they were knocked out of EFL Cup by Manchester City by 4-1 where Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Aymeric Laporte took the Gunners apart and Arsenal’s consolation was scored by Alexandre Lacazette. In the post match conference, Arteta said that Arsenal were in ‘trouble’.
“We have to turn it around, there’s no question about that,” Arteta said. “We are in big trouble. I am focused on the fighters we have. I see a lot of fighters. This was a really painful moment again. We conceded a soft goal really early and to get through that is difficult but we reacted and scored. After that we were the better team but then we conceded another soft goal.
“When you give away the goals that we gave against an opponent like this, it makes the game impossible. Then, we have an open situation when we can play Lacazette through and they score on the counter and from an offside position. After that, the game is over.”
Arsenal are currently on fifteenth position and reports say that the Club have started preparation for relegation with huge pay cuts and Arteta can be sacked in the coming days.
