Arsenal have won just 45 points from 29 Premier League games this season, which is fewer than David Moyes during his one season at Manchester United.
It’s a sad state of affairs when Arsene Wenger has managed to win fewer points in 29 games this season than Moyes did during his disastrous 2013/14 season as United manager.
Arsenal currently have 45 points; United had 48 after the same amount of games played.
Moyes was sacked before the end of his one and only season in charge of the Red Devils in April 2014.
Wenger was once one of the world’s best football managers and now appears to be losing his grip on the club he says he loves.
FT 2-1 Brighton. Arsenal's entire season now depends on the Europa League. The AC Milan tie is huge for Wenger.
Only West Ham, Huddersfield, Stoke, Everton and West Brom have lost more Premier League games on the road this season than Arsenal's eight.

What’s even more disturbing is that Arsenal have broken their club transfer record twice in the last year – on Alexandre Lacazette (£52m from Lyon) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£56m from Borussia Dortmund). Wenger’s managed to take two of Europe’s top strikers and render them almost useless because they get no service in his current system.
After Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat away to Brighton on Sunday, it’s looking increasingly likely that the board will just end this shambles and sack the Frenchman. Only West Ham, Huddersfield, Stoke, Everton and West Brom have lost more away matches during the 2017/18 campaign.
With just nine games left to play, it’s hard to imagine Wenger turning things around this time.
