Despite having an early advantage thanks to Bukayo Saka’s goal, Arsenal could not preserve the advantage. They exposed flaws in the defense system and allowed their opponents to equalize in the first half.
Entering the second half, the Gunners again played recklessly in the anti-corner situation, opening up the opportunity for Bobby De Cordova-Reid to score the goal to help Fulham complete the comeback.
According to statistics from Opta, Arsenal have conceded 4 goals from corner kicks in their last 6 Premier League matches. Meanwhile, before that, they only received 1 goal lost this way in 14 matches.
In addition, the Gunners also lost a match in the Premier League despite scoring first since New Year’s Day 2022 (they lost to Manchester City). After 48 unbeaten matches, that streak has now ended.
With no win in the last 3 matches, Arsenal has fallen to 4th place in the rankings. They are equal on points with Man City but have played one more match.
