Fan View: ‘The gun is too heavy to carry’ – Arsenal fans call for Arteta sacking after Chelsea defeat



The Gunners were handed a 2-0 defeat by the Blues at the Emirates Stadium and they are now second from bottom on the 20-team table

Arsenal fans across Africa have once again called for Mikel Arteta’s sacking after the team suffered a 2-0 defeat against Chelsea in the Premier on Sunday.

The Gunners were outplayed  by their London rivals in front of their home fans, with first-half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Reece James handing them a second consecutive defeat, having lost the season opener 2-0 against promoted side Brentford.

The latest defeat saw Arsenal drop to position 19 on the 20-team table and they are yet to even score a goal, their worst start to the season in 128 years.

With the game against Manchester City coming up on Saturday, a number of Arsenal fans in Africa have aired their views on social media, insisting the club should do away with Arteta or else “they will be relegated.”
