Arsenal board have made their decision on Mikel Arteta after nightmare run

Table toppers lock horns for youngster

The Arsenal board are said to be very happy with current boss Mikel Arteta and are relaxed about handing him a new contract. This comes despite the fact that the Gunners haven’t won in their last four matches. They have fallen five points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool following a dismal run of form over the festive period. The north London giants now face a huge battle to stay in the title race.

Arsenal and Arteta looking to build up on last season

Arsenal enjoyed a sensational campaign last time around. They led the table for much of the season before being leapfrogged by eventual champions Manchester City.

The lack of quality and depth in certain positions was evident as they bottled the title which was their’s to lose. The owners made significant investments in the club this summer which helped them bring in quality players like Declan Rice, Jurrien Timber and David Raya. The aim was and still is, to go one better than the last season.

Arsenal hierarchy calm despite recent form

Arsenal under Arteta at the start of the season, looked determined to better the previous season. They won 11 of their first 15 PL games and were at the top of the table at the end of November.

But the wheels came off in December following a 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa. The Gunners went on to suffer back-to-back defeats against West Ham and Fulham after drawing 1-1 with Liverpool at Anfield. And Arteta’s side exited the FA Cup last weekend after losing to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

Arsenal have faltered in front of goal recently and have been guilty of wasting a hatful of chances. But the poor displays don’t appear to be impacting the Arsenal board’s view of manager Mikel Arteta.
