Lamech Bwabi



Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has found himself on the blaming end as his side suffered a consecutive defeat in the premier league. Arsenal lost 1-0 to Manchester City and repeated to Leicester who won via a late goal by Vardy. As the season began, Arsenal fans were salivating for the new season as the gunners looked promising winning the FA and Community shield. With the signing of Partey, Gabriel and even contract extensions, the North London side looked strong and threatening.
Ozil’s saga
Recently the wave has changed in the dressing room and even off the pitch as 2014 world cup winner Mesut Ozil was left out of the Europa league and premier league. The German international joined the gunners in 2013 and has remained loyal to the team performing at his best. He last played for the gunners in March before corona ruined everything .His letter via his Instagram account proves that he is not in good terms with the board and is being fought for speaking against injustice and inhumanity.
The post attracted likes and comments of fellow team mates and other football legends who promised to stand with him. These seems to be a bad idea and has caused confusion in the dressing room.
Poor squad selection
He has been opening for a 3-5-2 which has not been productive. Arsenal beat formation remain to be a 4-4-2. With Partey, it was expected that he was the man to hold the midfield this giving more space for other forwards to launch attacks. In the match against Leicester, Arteta used Xhaka, Partey and Calculations who are all defensive midfielders. They proved to lack creativity and showed how important Oil is. Since Carzola, Ramsey and even Wilshere left, Arsenal have not found a box to box midfielder and missing on Aouar was a big lose to the Gunners.
Auba playing on the flanks
It ia hard for Aubameyang to be a threat while coming from the flanks. Auba is good while playing as the talisman for her is sharp when in the goal area. He proved these during the game against Rapid Vienna in Australia. In the last four games, he has not scored and was even not active as always thus much pressure on his side.
Lacazette has also not been in a good form having missed several chances. When Martin elli fully recovered, the fans will have to smile for the young star is more clinical but for now it remains a crisis. Next Arsenal moves to Old Trafford against Manchester United.
