Arsenal have hit a 37-year low on the back of their 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa, with Mikel Arteta’s side reaching double figures for the season when it comes to Premier League defeats.
The Gunners have suffered 10 setbacks through 23 fixtures in the 2020-21 campaign and that unwanted return represents the club’s worst record when it comes to reversals since 1983-84.
Back then, Arsenal took just 17 games to come unstuck on 10 occasions and, while they have fared marginally better this time out, inconsistency has remained an issue for the north London outfit.
Arteta saw his side struggle once again during a trip to Villa Park on Saturday, with a slow start costing the Gunners dear.
Arsenal have now suffered back-to-back defeats, with a promising six-game unbeaten run brought to shuddering halt in a loss at Wolves which saw them end the game with nine men.
