Arsenal FC supporters started the season with lots of hope and a 4-3 win over Leicester suggested that the Gunners could go well this season, although the London side go into the international break with just those three points after defeats at Stoke and Liverpool.
A 1-0 defeat at the bet365 Stadium was followed by a 4-0 thrashing at Anfield, with Arsene Wenger admitting that the performance simply wasn’t good away as a rampant Liverpool side blew them away.
Arsenal are out to 28/1 with Sky Bet to win this season’s Premier League title. Although just three rounds of games have been played, it’s hard to see the Gunners competing for top honours this season and Arsene Wenger’s position is now in the spotlight.
Wenger is a 12/1 shot to win the latest version of the Premier League Sack Race, with the Frenchman having recently agreed a new two-year deal although there were supporters calling for his head at Anfield.
It appears as though Alexis Sanchez wants out at the Emirates Stadium and Raheem Sterling plus cash has apparently been offered for the Chilean, with Arsenal looking like an embarrassment on Sunday and there was an overall lack of commitment and hard work.
Asked what went wrong at Anfield, the Arsenal manager replied: “Everything. From the first minute to the last minute we were not at the level requested for such a game. Not physically, not technically, not mentally and we were punished. That’s basically it. Of course, you can analyse the chances we gave away, but I just think overall the performance was not at the requested level.”
Wenger’s post-match press conference lasted only two minutes and 10 seconds before he left the media room at Anfield but he also said: “The result is a consequence of our performance. We were not good enough. We were beaten everywhere physically, in the end I believe we made it easier for them, and the mistakes gave them a cushion.
