Three reasons why this must be Arsene Wenger's final season at Arsenal
It was a tough opening weekend for Arsenal fans as they saw their side outclassed by Liverpool, what is more troubling is that it was not even surprising. We have been here before. Only a solitary win in their last seven opening weekend fixtures just highlights how poor their preparation has become going into a Premier League campaign.
Sunday’s 4-3 loss at the hands of Jurgen Klopp’s men was a capitulation. Two quick Arsenal replies from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers, with the game at 4-1 papered over the cracks of a calamitous display. Was it a spirited fight back? or did Liverpool take their eye off the ball? I would suggest the latter.
This result leaves them 14th and playing catch up, something that the Emirates faithful have seen too many times before. Wins for Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have seen them fall off the pace and give the initiative once more to their rivals; something that a club with ambition can ill afford.
