Shearer: Arteta should be ‘worried’ about Arsenal relegation

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.”
