The result leaves Arsenal in fourth position on the Premier League table, behind Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Liverpool.
The Gunners were defeated at Craven Cottage on Sunday by Fulham United.
Arteta, the club manager, has explained the reason behind his 2-1 defeat at Craven Cottage.
The Gunner star opened the net after 5 minutes of starting.
During his news conference following the game, Arteta stated that the Gunners were insufficient against the host.
“We didn’t measure up. There wasn’t enough rhythmic danger from us. We were second-best defensively, according to Arteta.
“A sad and painful day,” he continued. That’s my summary of the situation. After twenty games, we had a chance to lead the table. We played a game that we should have won three days ago, but today was different.
