What Arsenal’s loss to Manchester United means for Mikel Arteta

After an incredible 10 game unbeaten streak in all competitions, Arsenal found themselves 2 defeats in the last 3 matches; These last two losses come to the clubs they are trying to push from the top to merge into one.

A five-goal thriller takes place at Old Trafford to end the course of the 14th Premier League game. Emile Smith Rowe opened the scoring at half-time with the strangest goal in a decade.

This was soon canceled by the home team when Bruno Fernandes equalized just before halftime. As we all know, momentum then came to Manchester United and the second half started for them on the front foot.

It wasn’t even seven minutes into the second half and the United star had arrived at the party to score his 800th career goal – Cristiano Ronaldo had given his team the lead – but the drama and action weren’t over yet.

Soon after, within two minutes to be exact, Martin Odegaard leveled for the second time of the night and the match was 2-2.

Unfortunately, the Gunners who were heroes turned into villains and were the reason why Man United had to receive a penalty with 20 minutes left in the game. Ronaldo No need for a second invitation and convert opportunities on the spot.

It was the final goal of the game and the score was reflected as 3-2 for Man United – the Gunners’ first loss against them in a seven-match unbeaten run.

What does this loss mean now for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal?

That means the Gunners will struggle or even go so far as to fail to break into the top four. If the Champions League is the target for next season, that goal could be missed entirely.

Mikel Arteta and his people played all six traditional top clubs and won only one game. The rest: they lost them all without even winning a single point from any of the encounters.

This could show us that the goal of winning the Champions League or even the Europa League may not be achieved next season. Their chance of winning a place in the European Cup is gone, but the light is fading with each clash of rivals vying for the same spot, lost.

If they can go on to beat others around the league and win with a win or two over their opponent in the top six then they’re back in business. But another loss to any of them again in the upcoming back-to-back matches and we can prepare for a new coach to take over at Emirates.

What’s next for the Gunners and Arteta?

Trip to Goodison Park for the first game against Everton next Monday. They are on the low end and would be the best chance for Arsenal to get back on the winning track.

Then they will host Southampton and then West Ham United to the emirates; The former players are also struggling to find stability while the London derby against West Ham will be a big test.

The Gunners have enough tools to go unbeaten and collect all nine points in the next three games. But my maximum bet is six/7 from Mikel Arteta and the North London boys.

Do you think the Gunners will be in the top 4 or top 6 at the end of the season?
