Video: Arsenal’s day goes from bad to worse as summer target Houssem Aouar scores for Lyon

Posted by

Arsenal fans, in case you needed to have your day made any worse, Houssem Aouar has just scored for Lyon.

The Gunners were defeated 2-1 by Everton at Goodison Park earlier today, which piled the pressure on Mikel Arteta, with his side genuinely in a fight for survival in the bottom-half of the Premier League table.

As Sky News report, Boris Johnson essentially cancelled Christmas for all Londoners and the majority of the South East of England, which you’d think covers the majority of England’s Arsenal fanbase.

Now, just to cap off a truly shocking day for Arsenal, Houssem Aouar, who as The Athletic report was wanted by the Gunners over the summer transfer window, has found the back of the net for Lyon.

While it’s not the greatest of goals, Aouar clearly has a knack for being in the right place at the right time. How Arsenal could have done with that on Merseyside this afternoon…

More Stories Houssem Aouar


  1. The way Arsenal piay is predictable. That’s why most if not all teams let them have possession without any penetration. I cant see them score in a million hours.
    Av scored with 3touches. Martinez throws the ball. Barkley crosses and Watkins scores. Arteta’s laboured approach gives defences time to mass.
    Thats why they cant score.

  2. Arteta was a protege of Guardiola. When he was at his peak playing tiki tak a style,the latter was dominant. Since the last five years teams know how to beat him. Arteta plays a similar style: passing from the back and keep ball.
    Once the play is disrupted, a swift counter like Spurs and others have shown,the gunners are easily outmanourvered and will lose.
    I dont understand how this team that beat Wolves,SU ,Mc and the Blues to win the FA cup
    could have degenerated so fast.
    Arsenal need to start winning and fast asap. If not I believe Arteta will have to go
