It was not a good weekend for Arsenal as they lost to Chelsea FC on Sunday by 0-2. The Gunners lost their second game of the season and they haven’t scored a single goal since the start of the new Premier League Season. In the first week, they lost to the newly promoted and the first time playing in the Premier League team, Brentford FC, and then Chelsea on Sunday.
It is becoming quite difficult for Arsenal’s boss Mikel Arteta to get his team to the winning side. Arsenal is going to play against the defending champions Manchester City next weekend in the Premier League. This game will be again a huge test for Mikel Arteta as they will be playing without their newly signed English defender, Ben White who joined the side from Brighton this season on a £50 million deal. Ben White was been tested positive for COVID-19 as informed by Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta in the pre-match talk on Sunday. Because of this, he didn’t play against Chelsea and now, it seems unlikely that he will feature in their next weekend’s game against Manchester City.
Arsenal and Mikel are really missing Ben White as their defenders are not looking sharp. They conceded two goals against Chelsea on Sunday because of their poor defending. The Arsenal fans would be hoping to see the English central defender soon as they want to get back to winning ways.
