Arsenal led the Premier League on Christmas but slipped to fourth after Liverpool’s win over Newcastle, trailing by five points. Despite dominating the first half, they lost to Liverpool in the FA Cup Third Round.

Mikel Arteta faces mounting scrutiny as Arsenal falters. They surrendered leads in two of their last three Premier League games, drawing at Anfield, losing to Fulham despite an early lead, and a 2-0 home defeat to West Ham. The FA Cup loss marked Arsenal’s first three-game losing streak in nearly two years.

Questions arise about Arteta’s need for further investment despite heavy spending on players like Kai Havertz and Declan Rice. Reports suggest interest in Dominic Solanke, Ollie Watkins, and Ivan Toney, highlighting Arsenal’s pursuit to strengthen the squad.

Amidst the signings, Arsenal’s substantial expenses – over €230 million last summer and almost €200 million the previous season – come under scrutiny. Arteta, known for player development, demonstrates a tendency to turn to the transfer market when faced with challenges, reminiscent of Pep Guardiola.

Despite spending €28 million on Aaron Ramsdale, he’s now behind David Raya, while the pursuit for a center-forward persists despite acquiring Gabriel Jesus. The arrival of Jurrien Timber adds to the list of signings despite Arteta’s significant spending on full-backs.

Arteta’s preference for player acquisitions over refining coaching skills contributes to Arsenal’s struggle for a top-four spot rather than contending for the title. His decisions, like adding Raya to the squad, create uncertainties in the goalkeeper hierarchy.

Arsenal’s defensive strength correlates with their system, yet individual errors under the spotlight affect performance. Arteta’s tactical setup, focusing on width due to inverted full-backs, restricts Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli’s attacking threat.

Their combined eight league goals, along with Jesus, only reach 11, paling in comparison to top scorers like Haaland and Salah, showcasing a coaching issue impacting Arsenal’s attack. Despite promising credit, if the second half of the season disappoints, Arteta’s managerial position might face scrutiny given the substantial financial investments.
