Arsenal fans were excited on Sunday evening as their team traveled to Elland Road to take on a high flying and newly promoted Leeds United in a mid-table football clash. Mikel Arteta was facing an experienced legendary Marcelo Bielsa for the first time in the English Premier League since taking over at the Emirates Stadium.
Mikel Arteta suffered another heartbreaking time away at Leeds United after his team failed to scoop all the three points that were up for grabs. To make the matters worse, Arsenal midfielder Nicolas Pepe was sent off for violent conduct in the second half.
The Gunners failed to bounce back from their three-nil defeat against Aston Villa before the International break.
Poor results always come as a result of players not utilizing their talents and poor form and poor decisions from managers. During the summer transfer window, Arsenal fans were excited by the arrival of Willian from their London rivals Chelsea.
Willian was expected to make an instant impact because of his age and experience in the English Premier League but the Brazilian seems to be another disaster that happened to Arsenal.
He started the game against Leeds and was deployed on the left side wing but he did not make ab impact and was substituted at halftime. Willian was signed as a number ten by Chelsea and his good results have been seen when he plays the same position but many feel he is being played in a wrong position by Arteta.
Arsenal midfielder Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is another star who has given Arsenal fans sleepless nights. Gabon International has failed to score in an open play for a long time. His last goal came against Manchester United from a penalty spot.
Against Leeds United, he was deployed as number nine and made only one shot on target. He also managed only 33 touches at Elland.
During the summer Aubamsmeyang was the talk of the transfer window choosing to extend his contract at the Emirates Stadium despite interests from other top clubs. His current form together with that of Willian is something all Arsenal fans have to worry about.
