Arsenal could not face the onslaughtManchester City in the League Cup quarter-finals, Wednesday (23/12) early morning WIB. Taking place at the Emirates Stadium, the Gunners lost 1-4.
Four City goals were born from Gabriel Jesus (3 ‘), Riyad Mahrez (54’), Phil Foden (59 ‘), and Aymeric Laporte (73’) which was reduced by Alexandre Lacazette’s goal in the 31st minute. The defeat worsened Arsenal’s situation.
Arsenal has now gone through four straight matches across competitions without ever winning. Even the last victory in the Premier League occurred in early November when they won 1-0 over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
After the match ended, Mikel Arteta did not talk much and considered Arsenal to immediately clean up in the following matches. If not, their situation will be even more dangerous (prone to enter the relegation zone).
“We have to reverse the season, there are no more questions. If not, we are in big trouble. That’s what will determine our season,” said Arteta quoted by the Mirror.
Arteta also dismissed the notion that Arsenal players were no longer committed to giving their all for him.
“Well, I’m focused on the fighters we have. The passion we showed tonight, once again, against very difficult opponents and conceding goals that we did, I saw the way we tried. I saw a lot of fighters,” added Arteta.
Time will tell how Arsenal will respond against Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion in the next two games in the Premier League.
