Arsenal, headquartered in North London, extended their losing streak to two games after losing 2 – 1 to Brighton & Hove Albion in a crucial meeting between the two clubs.
Arsenal, the English Premier League’s biggest club, were shambolic throughout today’s match, losing 1-0 at home.
Gabriel Martinelli, Alexandre Lacazette, Ben White, Martin Odegaard, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Cedric Soares, Gabriel Maghales, Emile Smith-Rowe, Bukayo Saka, Granit Xhaka, and Aaron Ramsdale, all Arsenal Superstars, were all shambolic in today’s match.
Brighton won on the road thanks to goals from Leonardo Trossard and Enock, while Arsenal got a consolation goal from Martin Odegaard.
The Gunners are remain in 5th place in the EPL standings, with 54 points so far this season, while Brighton have moved up to 11th place.
Take a look at three tactical blunders made by Mikel Arteta during their match against Brighton.
- WRONG LINE UP AND FORMATION: For their crucial EPL match against Brighton, the Spanish and Arsenal head coach used a 4-2-3-1 formation.
The team’s home loss to Brighton was due to a poor choice to deploy some players out of position.
- WRONG SUBSTITUTION: In the second half, Mikel Arteta, the Spanish and Arsenal head coach, made two incorrect substitutions. To replace the fatigued players, the Arsenal strategist brought in Edward Nketiah and Nicolas Pepe.
Mikel Arteta’s late substitutions contributed to their poor performance against Brighton.
- WRONG STYLE OF PLAY: In order to support the lone striker, Arsenal tactician Mikel Arteta used Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli as wingers.
Arsenal’s head coach moved some of his players out of their favoured positions, which resulted in a terrible performance versus Brighton.
