Arsenal end 48-match record

After losing to Fulham, it has been revealed that have lost a Premier League game despite scoring the first goal for the first time since New Year’s Day in 2022 against Manchester City, having gone 48 such games unbeaten before Sunday’s defeat.

Arsenal have now also lost their 20th game of the season in five of their last six Premier League campaigns.

Following the tie, Mikel Arteta gave a very honest assessment of his side’s display:

“Painful and a sad day,” he said. “That’s how I would sum it up. We had the chance to be top of the table after 20 games with the consistency that we’ve shown. We haven’t managed well enough to earn the right to win the game. Three days ago we lost a game that we deserved to win, today was a very different story.

“We weren’t good enough. We weren’t good enough in ball possession, we gave too many balls away. we didn’t have enough rhythm, enough threat. Defensively we were second best. We could not control the direct play. It was so easy for them to win that first and second ball and have the opportunity to run. Then we conceded two goals like we did against West Ham and when you do that in this league it’s going to be very difficult to win.”
