Ray Parlour reveals he’s afraid that Arsenal might be relegated from the Premier League

0 Western Sydney Wanderers Gold Star Luncheon

In the midst of their worst start to a top-flight campaign for 46 years, Ray Parlour admits he is worried Arsenal might be relegated from the Premier League this season.

After losing seven out of 13 matches this term, Mikel Arteta is under heavy pressure at The Emirates, leaving the Gunners hovering over the relegation zone down in 15th.

Of course, with a number of world-class operators in their ranks, at some stage, they will be expected to revive their nightmare season and slowly climb back into the top half of the table.

Former Arsenal midfielder Parlour has, however, warned his old club that they are not too lucky to be relegated if Leicester should somehow win the Premier League title back in 2016.

The 47-year-old told Off The Ball, “The other day someone asked me the question, could they be relegated?”

I said, ‘Ok maybe not,’ but then you look at Leicester winning the 5,000-1 league and they won it—so they’re going to be relegated.

“If they don’t begin to collect points and turn them around, then there is a real problem.”

Right now, Arsenal are just five points above the relegation zone and have in store a tricky Christmas schedule.

Before locking horns with London rivals Chelsea on Boxing Day they are expected to go away to high-flying Everton on Saturday night.

Over the festive season, there is a very possible chance that the North London club will fall into the bottom three, but Parlour is still helping Arteta to turn things around.

“Arsenal is not a sacking club, I don’t think,” he said.

He’s hopeful arteta might turns things around

Mikel Arteta was around Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger and he knows the locker room is so critical as a player.

If a problem arises, he has to deal with it very quickly. When it gets out of hand, it’s not the players, it’s the boss right away, the only one who loses their job.

“I hope he can turn it around and make sure he can sort it out very quickly.”
