Arsenal has lost two matches in a row in less than a week’s time. Former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson believes rift between Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and his assistant Steve Bould which is causing an impact in their recent form.

The Gunners lost their Premier League match to Norwich City last weekend which left them out of top four in the league table making it ten points gap between them and the League leaders Chelsea. The London club also lost their midweek Champions League match to Schalke after conceding two second-half goals taking them to second place in their group with a point separating the top two teams.

Bould replaced Pat Rice in the summer and Robson claims Arsenal’s new assistant manager is not having a good time with Wenger leading to off the field rift between the two which is causing problems on the pitch.

Speaking to Talksport, Robson said, "It looked more encouraging at the start of the season but it’s been five to six years and the same things happened time and time again"

"I hoped that he would do more with the defense but I'm not sure whether he's being allowed to do that by Arsene Wenger. I think there might be a rift in the camp between those two from what I've heard"

Arsenal manager has been in such situation in the past where he has helped his team to fight back and make it to the top four of the league. If Robson’s claims are true then it is high time the Wenger and Bould need to sort it out before the matter becomes worse impacting the team’s results. Arsenal faces Queens Park Rangers this weekend in the League. All eyes will be on Wenger during the pre-match conference as what the French manager has to say regarding Robson’s claims.
