Arsenal has lost their last two matches and has dropped to the fourth spot of the English top flight table, two points below new third-place team Manchester City and only one point ahead of fifth-running squad Liverpool.
The Gunners were romped by current league leaders Chelsea, 1-3, in their most recent Premier League fixture last Saturday on the road at the Stamford Bridge, as per BBC Sport.
Spanish defender Marcos Alonso opened the scoring in the 13th minute for the Blues as the hosts took a 1-0 lead at the halftime break.
Eden Hazard then doubled the lead in the 53rd minute with an impressive individual goal that saw him dribble the football from the midfield line.
Cesc Fabregas, who is rumored to be being courted by an unnamed Chinese Super League side, scored Chelsea’s third goal in the contest in the 85th minute before Arsenal could respond with a consolation goal on the stroke of full-time, courtesy of Olivier Giroud.
Meanwhile, Hull City pulled off a stunning 2-0 upset over another contending squad, Liverpool FC, at their home ground of KCOM Stadium also last Saturday, the Mirror reported.
Senegalese midfielder Alfred N’Diaye broke the game’s deadlock in the 44th minute to give head coach Marco Silva’s men a one-point advantage at the half.
The Tigers then sealed the win in the 84th minute with a superb goal by substitute striker Oumar Niasse from a long pass by Italian defender Andrea Ranocchia.
The win snapped a two-game winless skid for Hull City, although they still remain in the bottom three relegation area at the moment.
