Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is beginning to lose the dressing room, according to the UK Sun.

Senior members of the squad are said to be growing tired of being blamed for the club’s poor results.

The Gunners are currently 11th in the Premier League table with just eight matches left this season.

They sit 12 points adrift of Champions League places and the Europa League is their only hope of success this campaign.

Arteta’s tactics were criticised following a 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague in their Europa League first leg on Thursday, with the Spaniard waiting until the 75th minute before making four changes.

He also has a habit of leaving a big player out of his starting XI following a disappointing result, giving the impression that the individual is to blame.

Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was benched for the Slavia Prague game for instance.

There is also the feeling among players, that summer signing Thomas Partey has not been able to spread his wings at Arsenal because of Arteta’s tactics.
