Things simply are not great for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal right now. After the team lost to Brentford 2-0 to open the season, people were calling for the Gunners to fire Arteta, as the team continues to play poorly.

Next up is a home match against Chelsea FC in the first big London Derby of the season. Plain and simple, Arteta needs to do everything in his power to get a win. Otherwise, he could be on his way out.

The fanbase is growing increasingly frustrated with the manager. After not finishing in the Top 4, Arsenal is missing out on the Champions League again. That's unacceptable and things are on Arteta here.
