Arsenal can get relegated - Ray Parlour

Arsenal can get relegated - Ray Parlour
With just four wins and 14 points from 13 games and sitting 15th on the table and just 5 points separating them and Burnley who sits 18th on the Premier League table, Former Arsenal player Ray Parlour thinks the London might be playing in Championship next season.

 It was another disappointing day for Mikel Arteta when his side failed to win at home again with a draw against Southampton. Southampton were the better side during the encounter with 65 possession of the ball as Arsenal players kept running around without clue all through the evening.

It was not surprising when Southampton went ahead through Arsenal's former player Theo Walcott who celebrated heavily scoring against his former employer.

Arsenal did get the equaliser in the 52nd minute of the game through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after a brilliant run from Bukayo Saka beating three Southampton players in the process.

There was no much action from Arsenal again after the goal with the only one coming in the 62nd minute when Gabriel who was already on a yellow received a red following a foul on Theo Walcott.

The game ended in a draw meaning Arsenal have now picked up just one win in their last nine Premier League games (W1 D2 L6).

Speaking on Off The Ball program, Ray Parlour believes his former side can get relegated and if they don't pick themselves up quickly.

“Someone asked me the question the other day, can they get relegated? Parlour said

“I said, ‘well, probably not,’ but then you look at Leicester winning the league at 5,000/1 and they won it, so they can get relegated.

“If they don’t start picking up points and turning it around then there’s a real problem there.”

Ray Parlour also thinks Arsenal won't sack Mikel Arteta has they will give him enough time to turn things around.

“I don’t think Arsenal are a sacking club,' He added

“Mikel Arteta has been around Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger, he knows as a player the dressing room is so important.

“If there is a problem, he has to deal with it very quickly. If it does get out of control, the only person to lose their job, it’s not the players, it’s the manager straight away.

“Hopefully he can turn that around and make sure he sorts that out very quickly.”
