Arsenal vs Chelsea: Arteta admits Gunners could be in big trouble

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has admitted his side will be in “big trouble” if they don’t turn things around quickly.

Arteta was speaking to the media after their dismal run continued with a 4-1 loss to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night.

Alexandre Lacazette cancelled out Gabriel Jesus’ opener, but City netted three times in the second half to cruise to victory.

It continues a miserable run for the Gunners, who sit in 15th place in the Premier League.

With 14 points from 14 games this season, Arsenal have their worst record at this stage of a league season since the 1974/1975 campaign.

Arteta’s men play Chelsea in a London Derby this weekend and the Spaniard knows they have to start getting results.

“We have to turn it around – there is no question. If we don’t we’re in big trouble. This is the moment that’s going to decide our season.

“On the basis of what we have shown tonight against difficult opponents, I have fighters in my team. Yes, I have fighters,” he said.
