Arsenal did not qualify for the European Cup due to its eighth place last season, and opened the 2021-2022 Premier League with a defeat against the rising Brentford (2-0).
An endless nightmare for Arsenal. The London club was deprived of the European Cup this season because it finished in a humble eighth place last May, and began its season with a defeat against promoted Brentford on Friday (2-0), to open the new season of the English Premier League.
The transfer window was rather short, and rightly so, for the Gunners, who have recruited Ben White at great cost and are looking to buy Martin Odegaard. The absences of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette had a huge impact. But Arsenal have something to worry about for the fans.
Then Chelsea Manchester City in the program
Sergi Canos opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, after a disastrous exit from Calum Chambers into a hot spot in the penalty area. A new penalty in the second period headed by Christian Norgaard fell into a confused position. 2-0 and not robbed, as Arsenal struggled to build sharp moves, with Nicolas Pepe still clumsy and despite the best efforts of Emile Smith-Roe alone.
August 13, 2021 and the resignation of Mikel Arteta is already required on social networks, with the hashtag #Artetaout. Arsenal’s next match will be against Champions League holders Chelsea, who have just won the European Super Cup. Then it will be… Manchester City. This start to the season promises to be decidedly bleak.
