Mikel Arteta makes worst start of any manager in history of Arsenal

- Mikel Arteta has won just one match of his six league matches he has managed Arsenal

- The record is the worst of any manager recorded in the history of the Gunners

- Tom Whittaker has the best record having managed five wins of his first six games after taking over in 1947

- Unai Emery and Arsene Wenger are the other top-placed managers alongside Bruce Rioch

Mikel Arteta may have inspired Arsenal to a thrilling 2-2 comeback draw against rivals Chelsea in a Premier League clash played at Stamford Bridge.

But stats prove the Spaniard tactician has made the worst start of any manager in the history of the Gunners.

Arteta replaced Unai Emery as the club's manager on permanent capacity in December 2019, rejoining his former side from Man City where he was Pep Guardiola's assistant.

The 37-year-old had his Arsenal job cut out, thanks to the club's slump and dip in form under Emery.

However, having dropped two more points against the Blues, Arteta has now collected a paltry seven points in his first six Premier League games.

SunSport reports the record is the worst of any Arsenal boss after six matches alongside that of Billy Wright.

Arteta has won just one of his six matches, with the victory coming against Man United in a 2-0 win on Wednesday, January 1.

Other matches against Chelsea, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth have all ended in draws, with his only defeat incidentally coming against the Blues at the Emirates back in December.

Meanwhile, Emery, the man Arteta replaced, enjoyed a flying start to life at the club as he managed 12 points from his first six matches.

The tally was a point better than legendary manager Arsene Wenger's who managed 11 from the same number of matches.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Arsenal talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reportedly informed Barcelona he is ready to complete a move to Camp Nou.

Aubameyang is understood to be on Barca's wish list this January as the La Liga giants seek a permanent replacement for Luis Suarez.

Suarez is set to be sidelined for close to four months after undergoing a knee surgery, forcing Barcelona into the market in search of reinforcements.

The Catalan side is now said to have turned their focus on Aubameyang to fill the void, with the 30-year-old not keen to extend his current deal with the Gunners.
