Arsenal lost to Everton and had the worst start in Premier League history because of unbelievable own goals this season.
Arsenal lost to Everton away from home and continued to rank 15th on the Premier League table with only 14 points in the first 14 rounds. This result gave the Gunners the worst start in Premier League history and also the worst start in the English championship since 1974/75 when they only won 12 points in the first 14 rounds.
Arsenal’s defense is playing badly
Notably, Arsenal’s poor performance is caused by their players repeatedly kicking their own goals in the past. In total, Arsenal players have up to 3 home goals in the Premier League this season, just less than two seasons 2004/05 (4 goals) and 2011/12 (5 goals).
Bukayo Saka, Aubameyang, and Holding respectively burned their net, causing Arsenal to lose points bitterly. In particular, Saka’s opening goal for the 0-3 defeat against Aston Villa. A month later, it was Aubameyang’s turn to burn his net, causing Arsenal to lose 0-1 to Burnley.
Holding an own goal made Arsenal lose to Everton
Lastly, Holding also helped Everton open the scoring in a 2-1 win with a soccer ball against the home team. This situation makes Holding the first Arsenal player to burn the home net when he meets Everton in the Premier League since Mikel Arteta did the same thing in April 2014. Meanwhile, Everton won with a score of 3-0.
