With just four points above the relegation zone, the North Londoners welcome their rivals at the Emirates Stadium on Boxing Day and while three days later travel to the AMEX Stadium.
And the former wins of the Man City boss are only expected to be victories after both remaining 2020 games.
SunSport reports that Sky Sports expert Jamie Redknapp has lashed out at the players, labeling them as “a bunch of jerks”.
The publication further revealed that Arteta’s men have been without a win in the league since November 1st.
Arteta was hired about 12 months ago as a replacement for Unai Emery who also failed to get the best out of his players. Speaking Monday night, Groves said:
“If these vague performances continue in the next three games, do Arsenal fans tell me they will stick to Arteta?”
“I think he has three games – we play Man City, Chelsea on Boxing Day, and then Brighton away.
“I’ve always said that a manager should have three transition periods to bring in players and throw out players, and one full season – then judge him. “But if things are so terrible, so bad, you can’t go through the whole season.
Arteta won the FA Cup top champions for the Gunners a few months after joining them, but he seems to have lost a magical need in the domestic league at the moment and needs to save his job.
