When it snows, it pours.
Arsenal painted blue lines on the Emirates turf in an attempt to bamboozle the Man City players while pretending they had to because of the snow.
It’s fair to say at this point, it didn’t work and City are clearly a much better side than the Gooners, the aggregate score for this week alone reads 6-0.
City completed a league double over Arsenal for the first time since 1977, three days after thrashing them in the league cup final, and it compounded the woeful start Arsen Wenger’s team has made this year.
All the positivity surrounding the January purchases of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has disintegrated in front of Arsenal fans’ very eyes.
After a 5-1 drubbing of Everton, Arsenal have lost four of their five game, including a North London derby defeat and going down to Ostersunds at home.
Arsenal have now won just four and lost seven of their 13 games in all competitions , which means they have lost more times in 2018 than any team in the Premier League.
They’ve got worst records than West Brom and Crystal Palace this side of the new year.
And the fixtures do not let up.
The Gunners go to in-form Brighton on Sunday before a crunch Europa League tie against AC Milan at the San Siro.
If they finish next week without two wins from those two games, or at least a draw in Italy, then if it hasn’t been decided already it really could be the end of Wenger this time.
Prepare to say goodbye to the last of a dying breed of long term managers.
FANCY SOME DREAM TEAM FEATURES?:
- Why were the pitch markings blue at the Emirates?
- Pep Guardiola offered to mix up the teams at half time last night
- Arsene Wenger didn’t make a single substitution against Man City
