Despite leading the Premier League for most of this season, reason results, which included Saturday’s defeat at Nottingham Forest, meant that Arsenal lost out on the title to Man City and that hurt manager, Mikel Arteta.
The Spaniard spoke to the TV cameras after the match, and there was disappointment etched on his face.
The Gunners were never at the races at the City Ground, consistently giving the ball away and making sloppy passes.
For a team that were the standard bearers for much of the 2022/23 campaign, that’s incredibly disappointing.
