17 Apr 2022 | 13:57 | News

On the evening of April 16 (Hanoi time), Arsenal suffered a 3-game losing streak in the Premier League for the second time this season with a 1-0 away loss to Southampton. This is the first time the Gunners have experienced this series of poor results since the birth of the Premier League.

The Gunners have lost their last 3 games to Crystal Palace, Brighton and Southampton. At the beginning of the season, coach Arteta’s team also lost to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City one after another. It was also the first time since the 1983/84 season that Arsenal have lost two straight in the same season.

Arsenal scored 2 goals after the last 73 shots. Arsenal’s attack has never been this bad since Opta, the world’s leading football statistics unit, started collecting data in 2003.

Arsenal have created 23 big chances in the Premier League since the start of 2022, scoring three goals. Arsenal’s clear chance for 2022 – goal conversion rate is currently at 13.08%, the lowest of the 98 teams in Europe’s top 5 leagues this season.

From 2011 to 2018, coach Wenger experienced two consecutive three-game losing streaks. At the same time, coach Arteta has also become the first strategist in Arsenal’s history, seeing the home team lose 3 consecutive league games (since the birth of the Premier League).

In the 2020/21 season, Arteta’s Arsenal also experienced a 3-game losing streak in the Premier League. The Gunners lost 3 games to Wolverhampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley in late November and early December 2020.

Last season, manager Arteta became the first man to let Arsenal lose 13 games in a league season (since the birth of the Premier League). Manager Arteta has lost 11 games in the Premier League this season. With Arsenal still playing seven games, there is a good chance the Spaniard will break his own record.

In nearly 18 months at Arsenal, manager Unai Emery has lost 13 games in the Premier League. Arsenal have spent more than £250million to please Arteta since sacking coach Unai Emery. Arsenal have also been the most expensive team in the Premier League to actually spend the most in the transfer market over the past two seasons.

Arteta: ‘I don’t understand why Arsenal lost’ The Spanish strategist couldn’t explain Arsenal’s 1-0 loss at home to Southampton in the 33rd round of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
