Arteta looks to be getting it wrong tactically following Arsenal 2-2 draw against Fulham at the Emirates

Mikel Arteta seems to be over thinking at the moment looking at the way he has being rotating the players. It was supposed to be all the 3 points for Arsenal at the Emirates no matter what but the points was shared with Fulham.

Some of the players are not currently playing in the position they thrive in such as, Thomas Partey playing right full back, Ben White playing center defense, and Gabriel not even starting along with Saliba.

This may be the reason Arsenal hasn’t being playing exactly the way they should at the moment.

They will surely be frustrated to have had to settle for just the one point despite coming from behind to lead, before seeing Fulham reduced to 10 men.

The Gunners were shocked early on when Andreas Pereira punished us for an early mistake, with the former Manchester United graduate taking full advantage from outside the box to beat an out of position Aaron Ramsdale.

Gabriel Martinelli was denied twice, before what looked a certain goal when the ball was falling into the path of Kai Havertz right in front of goal, only for the defender to rescue with a block in the nick of time.

Arsenal could have had a breakthrough when Martin Odegaard fired in a low drive into the goal from outside the area, but offside was called on Kai Havertz who had initially broke in behind the defence, and unfortunately VAR wasn’t to prove in our favour.

Arsenal went into the break a goal down, but there was plenty of reason to believe there was more to come from our side after the amount of chances we were creating.

The Gunner boss Mikel Arteta introduced Leandro Trossard with Eddie Nketiah at the break, but it was the changes 10 minutes later (Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira replaced Thomas Partey and Kai Havertz) which seemed to make the difference.

Fabio Vieira was fantastic and he looks like he wants to fight for the starting spot and Kai Havertz may have to make way for him if he keeps playing like this, fans won’t be too patient anymore because many of the fans thinks Arsenal paid to much for him while some said he was not even needed in the first place.

On the 70-minute mark, the Portuguese midfielder managed to force a foul from Tete, and Bukayo Saka made no mistake in sending the goalkeeper the wrong way. Almost straight after, we then find ourselves leading after Bukayo Saka laid it into the path of young Eddie to smash it into the net of the goal.

It looked destined for Arsenal to secure all the three points when Bassey got a second caution to leave his side with only 10 men, but Palhinha certainly didn’t get the memo as he beat the defenders to get onto the cross from the corner and fire inside the far post.
