Arsenal have been trimmed again to 20/1 in bwin’s Premier League relegation odds after being thrashed 5-0 at Manchester City.
The Gunners, who had Granit Xhaka sent off, went into the international break bottom of the table following three straight defeats, with nine goals conceded and none scored.
Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang indicated some home truths are likely to be delivered during the time off.
“I think we need to talk between us players,” the striker said. “I think this is now important because we are Arsenal and we need pride.
“We have to talk and say the truth between each other, be honest and raise the level.
“For sure, it is going to be difficult, but we are a team. We have to stick together in this moment.”
Norwich also remained pointless following a 2-1 home loss to Leicester and are just 4/6 for a quick return to the Championship.
However, the Canaries produced an improved display against the FA Cup holders and Daniel Farke is hopeful of turning things around.
Farke said: “We are disappointed because it is a loss and football can be the cruellest sport in the world.
“Sometimes the better side loses the game and I have the feeling this was the case.
“After a tough start, the lads were brilliant and fought their way back against one of the best sides in the league.
“The lads played their hearts out, so many compliments for the performance. We are lacking our deserved reward.”
Wanderers denied by De Gea
Wolves complete a trio of teams on zero points after losing 1-0 to Manchester United and they are 10/3 in bwin’s Premier League relegation odds.
Most observers will have been impressed with Wanderers’ overall play against the Red Devils, though.
David De Gea’s brilliant reaction stop denied Romain Saiss, he also thwarted Raul Jimenez, Aaron Wan-Bissaka cleared off the line from Francisco Trincao and Joao Moutinho shot over.
Bruno Lage declared: “The most important thing is to look back on this 90 minutes and the way we played and the chances we created.”
Newcastle picked up their first point via a 2-2 draw with Southampton at St James’ Park and are 7/5 to fall.
Head coach Steve Bruce faced chants calling for him to go during the eventful encounter but Allan Saint-Maximin has urged the Magpies to stick together.
He told NUFC TV: “Every game is really hard and the next game is against Manchester United, so we have to be concentrated and try to do the best things we can do to win this match.”
Burnley also got off the mark with a 1-1 draw versus Leeds and can be backed at 7/5 for the drop.
“It’s a little bit disappointing, going up and then conceding late on,” goalscorer Chris Wood told the club’s official website.
“It’s a bit of a kick in the teeth. That’s life. I think we’ve done extremely well. The team was fantastic.
“I don’t know if we deserved the win but I thought we ground it out, making ourselves a good option for a win.”
Crystal Palace doubled their tally with a useful 2-2 draw at West Ham but are only 6/5 in this market.
Watford are 5/4 after staying stuck on three points following a 1-0 loss at Tottenham.
Brentford remained unbeaten and have five after a 1-1 stalemate at Aston Villa, with the Bees quoted at 11/4 to go straight back down.
