The Gunners dropped a 2-1 lead against Marco Silva's men to pick up a single point, sparking frustration from the fans.

Arsenal took on a struggling Fulham side at the Emirates Stadium in one of Saturday's several fixtures yet managed to snatch a draw from the jaws of victory.

The North London giants conceded inside the first minute of a home league game for the third time in 2023, with Bukayo Saka's misplaced pass and Aaron Ramsdale's poor positioning gifting the visitors an early lead.

However, the Gunners managed to turn things around in two minutes, with Saka equalizing in the 70th minute before Eddie Nketiah put the hosts in front in the 72nd minute. Calvin Bassey was then sent off in the final 10 minutes of normal time but despite this tremendous advantage, the Gunners picked up only a point.

Joao Palhinha scored the equalizer from a corner kick for 10-man Fulham, with the Cottagers leaving the Emirates Stadium with a point. Arsenal fans were understandably frustrated by this result as the club's habit of conceding sloppy goals at home continues.

Speaking after the game, Arteta was asked about what went wrong and why the hosts dropped two points. The Spaniard argued that his side deserved the win and highlighted their lack of efficiency in the opposition's box as an issue.

However, this did not spare the tactician from the ire of the fans. Arteta's decision to leave Gabriel Magalhaes on the bench, play Thomas Partey as an inverted right-back, and start Kai Havertz for a third consecutive game frustrated supporters.

Meanwhile, while Saka and Co. did miss a handful of opportunities, the English winger and fellow attacker Gabriel Martinelli were left isolated due in part to Arteta's tactical set-up.

Things get trickier for Arsenal from here, with the North London giants facing Manchester United next weekend. After the international break, Arteta's men travel to Everton, a ground where he has struggled, and will need to find solutions to their 2023-24 issues immediately.
