After a positive set of results, it seems like the odds are again stacked against the gunners, with 3 consecutive losses against bottom-half teams Mikel Arteta‘s Arsenal is forced to make changes in his formation.
Results such as 0-3 vs Crystal Palace where Conor Gallagher was pushing as if he had 7 lungs installed in him.
1-0 loss against Southampton makes it 15 games for the gunners in which their strikers haven’t scored a goal from open play.
Arsenal created 23 chances out of which Odegaard came the closest.
Jan Bednarek’s goal proved to be the decisive one of the nine shots Southampton fired that day.
Unfilled Void of Arsenal
Two months since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left for Barcelona, Arsenal are unable to replace his void. Holding no grudges Aubameyang has been scintillating for the Blaugrana with 10 goals in 16 appearances. Arsenal were suffering from Aubameyang’s bad form for a long time.
But the gunners really need his firepower and pace to get behind defenses. Arsenal without Aubameyang looked promising and went on to win 10 out of 13 games, scoring 26 goals.
Problems are just mounting for Arsenal especially when they are so near to securing Champions League football for next season not only do they lack firing power upfront but they have three key players who’ll be out of contract by the end of this season and are heavily linked with away moves from north London.
Players like Bernd Leno who have been heavily linked with a permanent or loan move to Newcastle. While the loaned players are expected to make their moves permanent. With 7 games in hand and 4 of them are deemed to be tough fixtures. Arsenal can’t afford to drop points and these 7 games will most probably decide their summer plans.
