According to The S*n, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has a task to fix the low morale of the squad after they suffered a fourth consecutive defeat in all competitions last weekend.
The Gunners’ loss to Brighton & Hove Albion led to a dressing room row and players blaming one another for Arsenal’s demise. Wenger is left to pick up all the pieces, but his task won’t be easy given how much bad blood there appears to be.
The S*n say Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shkodran Mustafi are three players whom the squad aren’t happy with for their performances of late, while Hector Bellerin reportedly fumed at Wenger for being dropped just two hours before Sunday’s defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.
Arsenal are currently sixth in the Premier League table with 45 points from 29 games – 1.55 points-per-game on average this season. The Gunners are 33 points adrift of leaders Manchester City and 13 off fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
The situation is currently dire, with Wenger’s men having lost four games on the bounce and eight in 2018 already. A trip to face AC Milan are next up for Arsenal, but their away form doesn’t make for good reading – having managed only two wins from their last 11 on the road in all competitions.
Wenger has his work cut out.
