Odegaard, in the wolf's mouth

Arsenal are in decline after two games, something that has not happened since 1992, and have a difficult schedule. A tough challenge awaits Odegaard.

Odegaard-in-the-wolf's-mouth

Arsenal have not started the season on the right foot. After falling 2-0 on the opening day against a newly promoted like Brentford, Mikel Arteta's men were beaten this Sunday in the London derby against Chelsea, before those who succumbed 0-2 at the Emirates Stadium. In two games, the Gunners have already added two defeats and, what is worse, no goals in favor. The feelings are very negative at Arsenal, which occupies a relegation position to the second division.

For the first time since 1992, Arsenal are in the relegation zone when they have played more than one game of the season. In fact, it is also the first time a season has started with two losses and no goals in favor in 118 years of history.Although it is true that Arteta has not been able to count on several of his most important players, the image of the team has been below expectations. Aubameyang missed the opening day, Lacazette has not yet been available, Ben White was killed by Covid-19 in the duel against Chelsea and others like Odegaard have not yet joined. In the absence of gunners, Balogun was the starting striker on the first day and Martinelli was this Sunday.

As if that were not enough, the calendar facing the 'Gunners' does not invite optimism. Next Saturday they must visit Manchester City on the third day of the Premier League and in just a month they have another London derby: on September 26 against Tottenham. In between, a cup match against West Brom and two matches against Norwich and Burnley.
