“Asking to get sacked” – These Arsenal fans are not happy with Mikel Arteta’s team selection vs Burnley

It’s amazing to say this as we move well into December, but Arsenal’s game against Burnley tonight is more of a relegation battle than anything else.

You have to think there’s no way that Mikel Arteta could actually guide the Gunners to relegation, but they’re having a shocking season and they are in desperate need of a victory to drag themselves back up the table.

The table is still fairly condensed so a run of wins would take Arsenal back towards European contention, while a win from Burnley would elevate them from the relegation spots for now.

It’s a game that Arsenal fans expect to win but we’ve said that plenty of times this season, so here’s a look at how Arteta is setting his team up tonight:

In many ways you can see why they’re struggling because players like Holding, Elneny and Xhaka wouldn’t be getting anywhere close to the starting XI’s for the other big teams in the league, while some of the summer signings haven’t worked out as planned either.

It’s understandable that the Arsenal fans are starting to turn against the team and the manager, but it appears that the repeated selection of Willian is the main gripe with many fans ahead of this one:

      cool , I think we need the second team to play also in the premiere league. They play better football than the first team.

  9. Doshka says:

    It’s not hard to tell mike is dancing to a tune he will regret for his entire coaching time at arsenal. Comments are jus an opinion,so people are just haters , we hard the best coach , arsen Wenger what happened, the fan plus the board made him quit . But now whatever is happening is we are the worst club in premier league. Who do u expect to win all your games yet u treat u player’s like shit , GOD is punishing this coach with a reason. Okay ozil compared to the board , the fans and the coach is a worse player than those who were playing. God is punishing arsenal for what we are doing to ozil , with him we were champions and finshed seventh. So its karma at its best , pride comes after a fall ,mike and it really hurts knowing u could have don better with ozil.

  13. Data Bin Isaac says:

    I tell you fellow arsenal fans that Arteta has made the worst thing by putting players categorically he deserves loosing because the players are against his critics and tactics. Let the players continue for him to be sacked.
