Chris Sutton has admitted that he feels sorry for Arsenal supporters following their dismal start to the new season.

The Gunners have made a poor start to the new season following back-to-back Premier League defeats on the road.

Arsenal lost 1-0 to Stoke City before a 4-0 defeat by Liverpool to leave their title challenge in doubt after three games.

The north London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on the Champions League.

Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira inspired Arsene Wenger’s men to title glory.

The Gunners haven’t come close to winning the top-flight crown over the past five or six seasons to heap pressure on Wenger.

Former Chelsea striker Sutton admitted that he feels for Arsenal fans with a lack of progress at The Emirates.

“I do feel sorry for Arsenal fans,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live ahead of Arsenal’s home clash against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Arsenal won the FA Cup for the third time in four seasons back in May at Wembley thanks to a 2-1 victory over Chelsea.
