Arsenal will attempt to resolve their current crisis with the appointment of a new defensive coach.
Arsene Wenger and his team currently boast the unenviable record of the third worst goals against column at this stage of the season in Premier League history, and it is clear that something needs to change.
Reacting to an unusually high proportion of goals conceded from set pieces last season, Arsenal adopted a zonal marking system, but that hasn’t resolved their difficulties.
Instead, the club will look to follow Liverpool in appointing a specialist coach for their defence – as the Reds did with Steve Clarke to great effect.
Can Arsenal turn their season around?
