WHICHEVER way you look at it, Arsenal have endured an horrific season under Arsene Wenger.
It’s got to the stage now where you just can’t see the long-serving French boss, 68, clinging on to his place at the Emirates.
With nine games still to play, the Gunners sit a whopping 33 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League standings.
They did manage to scrape through to the Europa League last-16 at the expense of Swedish minnows Ostersunds.
But Carabao Cup final defeat to City and crashing out of the FA Cup to Nottingham Forest all points to the worst season of Wenger’s time in North London.
Four consecutive defeats in all competitions, most recently in the 2-1 defeat at Brighton, simply rubbed salt in to the wounds.
So bad has Arsenal’s season been, in fact, they’ve spent more time losing in the Premier League than last-placed West Brom, according to bwin.
The Gunners have been trailing for a spectacular 28.3 per cent of games this season – with even the Baggies only losing for 26.9 per cent of the time.
In fact, only eight Premier League teams have spent more time losing this term than Wenger’s struggling stars.
At the other end of the table, it’s Man City and Liverpool dominating – as they sit No1 and No2 respectively – in both most time spent winning and least time spent losing.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have spent the most time of all teams losing, at a horrifying 35 per cent, while sitting last in time spent winning on just 12 per cent.
Meanwhile, on the individual front, Timothy Fosu-Mensah has spent the most time losing – at a massive 49.3 per cent of his playing time.
On the other hands, Man City star Ilkay Gundogan – fresh from his record-breaking performance against Chelsea – is the most successful player this season.
The German has spent 62 per cent of his playing time leading – with Liverpool’s Loris Karius boasting an impressive 54 per cent.
