Arsenal could break record for WORST start to Premier League season with loss against Norwich on Saturday

Arsenal could break record for WORST start to Premier League season with loss against Norwich on Saturday

ARSENAL could make history next week if they receive a thumping at home to Norwich City and an unwanted record.

Pressure is mounting on boss Mikel Arteta after a dismal start to the Premier League campaign.


They kicked off the season with a 2-0 defeat away to newly-promoted Brentford before they were easily brushed aside by Chelsea at home.

But after some brief respite in the Carabao Cup, things got even worse for the Gunners last weekend when they were walloped 5-0 at Manchester City.

Arteta’s side are yet to even score a goal in the Prem yet and if that dreadful run continues then they could write an unwanted new chapter in the Premier League’s history.

However, Norwich have also endured a difficult time of it since returning to the top-flight.

They currently sit above rock-bottom Arsenal only by virtue of having scored a goal – but they have shipped 10 in the process.

The two clubs will go head-to-head after the international break – and it may just be one for the record books.

BETTING SPECIAL – GET 20/1 ON ENGLAND TO BEAT ANDORRA

Swindon Town made the worst start ever in the Premier League after losing all of their opening four games in the 1993-94 season.

As well as zero points, they also sat at the bottom of the pile with a -12 goal difference.

Both Arsenal and Norwich have the same points total but each has a goal difference of -9 going into their showdown.

But that means that a three-goal victory for either side would equal Swindon’s record.

However, should one of them hit top form and inflict a four goal or more hammering then a new chapter could be written in Prem history.
