Arsenal head into Monday night’s game against West Ham just four points off the relegation zone.
A win for the Hammers, currently placed 16th, would see Manuel Pellegrini’s side move level on points with the club.
The worrying form has some Arsenal fans on social media genuinely fearing relegation ahead of this ‘six-pointer’ at the London Stadium.

Surely not, right?
Well, nothing should ever surprise you in football anymore. It would be one of the biggest stories and shocks in Premier League history if Arsenal were to even be dragged into a relegation battle, let alone actually go down!
Given how tight the Premier League table is from the top six down, the Gunners don’t need to be worrying too much yet, but if their dire form continues, who knows where they could end up.
