Alan Shearer would “not be so sure” about Arsenal’s chances of avoiding relegation from the Premier League.
The Gunners suffered their eighth league defeat of the season as they lost 2-1 to Everton on Saturday and sit just four points above the relegation zone.
Early loser: Willian, that was really nothing
It’s the worst start for Arsenal since the 1974-75 campaign and the pressure is mounting on Mikel Arteta, the players and the club.
Asked on Match of the Day whether Arsenal will stay up, Shearer said: “I wouldn’t be so sure. Not with that starting team and the attitude of some of those players.”
And Shearer said of their performance: “Awful. No creativity, players going through the motions, not working hard enough and not closing down.
“Mikel Arteta should be a worried man relying on that group of players trying to save his job. 12 goals all season, they have no options.”
