New “slap” from Fulham for… dizzy Arsenal!

by

In the most disappointing way, he says goodbye to 2023 Arsenalwho found a new… abuser in the person of her fellow citizen Fulham.

What if Mikel Arteta’s side only took the lead at 5′ at Craven Cottage. He saw Marco Silva’s turn the score (2-1) and keep it without a win for a third consecutive match (after the draw with Liverpool and the defeat by West Ham).

Thus, it remained at 40 points, 4th at the end of the 20th game of the Premier League, at -2 from Liverpool (less matches) and Aston Villa. Of course, Manchester City also has a game less, which also has 40 points.

A result, then, that had multifaceted negative connotations for Arsenal. And that’s because it was their first defeat against Fulham since January 2012, their first defeat in the previous match in 49 matches, and their first back-to-back defeat in the Premier League since May.

To 39 points went up Tottenhamwhich returned to winning ways by prevailing 3-1 her Bournemouth.
