The pressure is seriously mounting on Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta at the moment. The Gunners slumped to another defeat on Sunday.

Arsenal fell to a home loss Burnley and were booed off the pitch by the handful of supporters that were in attendance at the Emirates.

Can Arteta turn it around at the Emirates?

At the end of the weekends’ round of action, Arsenal were left in 15th place in the Premier League.

That’s three places above the drop zone.

They are 10 points away from the top four and only five from the relegation zone.

It also added to the demise of their current form as Arsenal have suffered three straight league defeats and four in their last five (D1).

In their last five league games, Arsenal have hit the back of the net just once.

So naturally, the bookmakers are going to be catching up with Arteta.

The Spaniard is now a 21/10 favourite at Paddy Power to be the next Premier League boss to get the chop* (betting odds recorded 02:022 GMT at Paddy Power on 13/12/2020)

Negative stats stacking up against Arsenal

The Gunners have not scored from open play in 12 hours and 32 minutes of Premier League action now.

This is also their worst start to a top-flight campaign since the 1974-75 season.

In suffering a defeat at the Emirates on Sunday, that was the first time in 61 years that they have lost four straight home league fixtures.

What lies ahead in December for Arsenal?

The Gunners are not getting much of a break in the month of December either.

In midweek they have to face the in-form Southampton before going to Everton next weekend.

Then on Boxing Day, they have a big London derby against Chelsea to deal with.

With the games against the Saints and Chelsea at the Emirates, a lack of return from those could see Arteta struggling even further to hold on to his job after having been assigned around this time last year.

Or will it be Wilder?

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder looks to be running out of time as well now.

The Blades are 12 games into the Premier League season and still haven’t won.

It’s been a shocking D1 L11 record from Sheffield United, a long fall from the brilliant campaign they put together last season.

So how much longer will the club stick with him?

Will they allow him to see out a busy December in which they face Man Utd, Brighton, Everton and Burnley?

That is going to be such a crucial run of games for the survival hopes of Sheffield United because January’s fixture list looks like a nightmare for them.

Chris Wilder remains the 13/5 second-favourite in the next Premier League manager to go market* (betting odds recorded 02:022 GMT at Paddy Power on 13/12/2020).
