Arsenal's dismal start to the season is their worst in over 100 years.

A 2-0 defeat at Brentford over a week ago was followed by the same result on Sunday - at home - to Chelsea.

Even at this very early stage of the season, the Premier League table doesn't make pleasant reading for Arsenal supporters with their side second bottom, on zero points and a goal difference of -4.

Such is their early-season struggles, the 2021/22 campaign is the first time in their 118-year history that they have failed to score and failed to win either of their opening two games.

Having lost two Premier League games on the spin, manager Mikel Arteta has now suffered 20 Premier League defeats during his Arsenal reign.

Unfortunately for the Spaniard, he has reached that unfortunate milestone after just 60 games.

In comparison, legendary Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger didn't reach 20 losses until his 116th match in charge.
