The hopes for top four race and securing a chance to play European elite football next season are at the knife edge for Mikel Arteta’s side, Arsenal following a humiliating night.
The Gunners were gunned down 3-0 by Tottenham Hotspurs who are closing in the top 4 race with Arsenal and Chelsea on top with 1, and 5 points ahead respectively.
Rob Holding’s first half red card and a couple of yellow cards contributed to the loss during the North London Derby.
Arsenal boss in a press conference said he will be in trouble if he dared to speak on the decision of the referee who he believes, aided the defeat.
“If I say what I think I am suspended for six months,” said Arteta when asked about the officiating.
He added, “I don’t know how to lie so I prefer not to say what I think. I cannot say what I think. I am not unhappy with my players. I am proud of my players. I want the referee to come in front of the camera and explain his decisions. It’s a shame because such a beautiful game was destroyed.
“The decision was made. We can’t change it. The referee has to make a decision in football.”
