Not since 1977 have things been this bad at Arsenal.

The struggling Gunners slumped to a 2-1 home loss to Brighton in the Premier League on Thursday, taking the team’s winless streak to nine games in all competitions _ its worst run in 42 years.

Interim coach Freddie Ljungberg clearly hasn’t found a quick fix to all the problems that plagued the team under Unai Emery _ who was fired last week _ and the Gunners looked completely shorn of confidence against a Brighton side that dominated large parts of the game.

“I don’t know what to say. I have the feeling that whatever we do it doesn’t come out right,” Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin said. “I am lost for words a little bit.”

Arsenal is looking lost, period.
