Following Arsenal’s 5-0 loss to Premier League rivals Manchester City, there is pressure on the club to sack Mikel Arteta and find a formidable replacement.

The Gunners who have lost all their opening three fixtures of the new campaign are also yet to register a goal so far.

Arteta was given free hands to spend well over £100m during the summer, but they are rock bottom of the standings.

Conte is readily available having left Inter Milan in the summer, just after delivering the Serie A title, but has been warned by former Gunner Kevin Campbell.

"But if I'm Antonio Conte and I'm looking at that yesterday, I wouldn't go anywhere near it. Let's be honest, I wouldn't go anywhere near it. Because it's the basics. They're getting the basics wrong," he said on Sky Sports News.
"And if you can't do the basics as a professional footballer. The manager can prepare you as much as he wants for a game. Once you cross that game, it's your job. You can't let [Ilkay] Gundogan beat you at the back post.
"It's not up to the manager to go and press people and stay on your feet and communicate and be hard to beat," he added.

Manchester United defeat Wolves away from home earlier reported that a late strike by Mason Greenwood has seen Manchester United defeat Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 in the Premier League at the Molineux stadium.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will finish the weekend in 3rd position on the Premier League standings ahead of the international break.

But it was the hosts that dominated the encounter for the larger part of the entire duration of the game.

Mason Greenwood grabbed the only goal of the encounter for United in the 81st minute as the Red Devils claimed all three points.
