Hector Bellerin sounded broken in his post-match interview after Arsenal 1-2 Brighton

Bellerin was the player who faced the media after the defeat to Brighton

How far can Arsenal sink this season?

It's a question that could have an eventual answer of 'Championship' if the Gunners do not turn things around sooner rather than later.

Arsenal are currently on their worst run of results in 42 years after deservedly losing 2-1 to Brighton last night at the Emirates.

They now sit just five points above the relegation places, with a difficult run of Premier League fixtures to come.

Home ties with Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United, plus away trips to West Ham, Everton and Bournemouth? It's going to be tough ol' time for Freddie Ljungberg's side.

It almost looks likely that come the first few weeks of 2020, Arsenal - a supposed top six side - will be in the relegation places.

A true crisis of confidence has engulfed the club and academy product Hector Bellerin sounded like a broken man in his post-match interview last night.

Speaking to a reporter, the Spaniard said: "I don't know what to say. I have the feeling that whatever we do it doesn't come out right.

"The team gave its best, we created chances, we defended good but it seems like we need so many chances to score and teams score every chance against us. I am lost for words..."

Wow, the situation has reached critical level over at the Emirates.

The analogy that Arsenal defended well against the Seagulls is pretty off, though with Bellerin himself turning in a pretty haphazard display.

Even going forward, Brighton created more chances and had more shots on goal than the Gunners.

Bellerin is clearly doing his best to try and preserve the last morsels of pride left in the squad, but should he have been the one facing the music from the media after the game?

No, that should have been newly-appointed club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Be warned Arsenal, it's a slippery slope.
