Arsenal are now in a crisis after their match against Burnley showed that they haven’t learned from the mistakes that they did in the past Premier League matches and they now find themselves in the 15th position on the table which has brought the debate of whether the North Londoners should decide to sack Mikel Arteta midway through the season.  So in this report we take a look at what would prompt the Arsenal board to sack Arteta midway through the season.


Arsenal’s goal since they parted ways with Arsene Wenger has been to quickly get back into the UEFA Champions League and they have however failed in the last two seasons but the board were however hopeful that Mikel Arteta would be the man to do it after his heroic Emirates FA Cup win. The club invested and brought in Partey, Gabriel and Willian and if they can’t get Champions League through the league, then they might not mind finishing below 10th as long as they win the Europa League and get back to the UCL.

The UEFA Europa League winner gets an automatic qualification to the Champions League and an early elimination next year could prove to be the final nail for Mikel Arteta as him getting eliminated early last season was tolerated since he was in his first season. Despite Arsenal’s impressive 100% win record in the group stage, they are still not favourites to win the competition as even wouldn’t give you a place that has odds of the North Londoners winning this European competition as they have now failed in three attempts.

December is always a stressful month for all Premier League managers but it’s a bit worse when you are a manager of a big six side and in bad form. Arsenal’s next matches in the month will be against Southampton, Everton, Manchester City, Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion.

All these clubs apart from Brighton & Hove Albion are in pretty good form and some more losses and draws might not be enough for Mikel Arteta to keep his job as pressure from the supporters could force the board to sack the Spaniard even though they are fond of him.
