Arsenal have made some progress under Arteta but will face their worst season since 1995 after a 1-0 defeat to Villa. Arsenal face West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, finishing between eighth and tenth.
Arsenal sacked manager George Graham after nine years in charge after finishing 12th in 1995. Arsenal, who have won just four away games this season, equaled the record for the worst away record in the Premier League in 2017-1. Arsenal have a poor record of 10 consecutive league defeats in three consecutive seasons, including this season.
