They are also known under other two nicknames: The Gunners, and The Arsenal. Their home ground is the Emirates Stadium with more than 60,000 seats. They have been coached by Mikel Arteta Amatriain since 2019. This former Spanish footballer used to be the manager assistant of Man City for three years before becoming the coach of The Gunners.
Arsenal have played in red shirts and white shorts at home matches. Their logo, which explains why they have the nickname “The Gunners”, features the cannon at the center of the emblem. The club’s name is placed above the gunner with the prominent white color on the red background.

Especially in the period of 2003-2004, Arsenal received the famous nickname “The Invincibles” due to the fact that they were unbeaten within 49 games during this season.

What are the results of Arsenal in the 2020-21 season?
As already mentioned, this year isn’t for Arsenal. They haven’t won any league or cup competitions at all, what a disappointment!
Accordingly, in the tournament that they are most successful, the FA Cup (with 14 times winning the titles), Arsenal was surprisingly defeated by Southampton right from the 4th round by 0-1. This made Mikel’s men being immediately eliminated from the FA Cup 2020-21.
Southampton kicked Arsenal out of the FA Cup
In the Premier League that has just finished on 23 May, Arsenal finished at the eighth position, which is no good indeed for a club that has three times won this prestigious league. They ended up with 61 points, after Tottenham with 62 points. And the champion is Man City with a total of 86 points.
Things seemed to be better in the Carabao Cup and Europa League, but Arsenal again lost their chances to the finals. In the EFL Cup, they reached the quarter-finals and met Man City. However, they lost three goals with the eventual result being 1-4 to The Blue Skye. Regarding the UEFA Europa League, Arsenal successfully led Group B by winning all six matches within the group and qualified for the next round. But unfortunately, they lost 1-2 after two legs of the semi-finals by Villarreal.
With no trophies this season, hopefully, Arsenal can have motivation for the next season and can prove to millions of football fanatics in the world that they deserve their nickname “The Invincibles.”
