After a disastrous start to the season, Arsenal started to gain some momentum as they went on a 9 match unbeaten streak which eventually came to an end when Liverpool thrashed the Gunners at Anfield. Since that defeat, things have only been going downhill for Mikel Arteta and his men. The fans have again started to doubt the manager’s process and the tactics he imposes. A massive drawback the Spaniard has is player management. Something that has cost Arsenal a lot of problems in recent matches. So we look at three managers who can replace Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.
#3 Graham Potter
A manager who has silently paved his way through among the top managers in the Premier League is Graham Potter. Hired by Brighton in 2019, Potter changed the way the club played and made Brighton a tough team to play against by implementing his idea of playing brave football with absolute freedom. The 46-year-old has been regarded as the ‘best English manager’ by Pep Guardiola. He has also been linked with top clubs in the past.

Graham Potter would perfectly suit Arsenal as he is tactically flexible as well. Potter will be getting a top 6 job sooner or later as he deserves one. The Gunners are just the team for him.
#2 Brendan Rodgers
Brendan Rodgers has been one of the best managers in the Premier League for quite some seasons now. While things did not work out for him at Liverpool, Rodgers has been doing wonders with Leicester City. They have missed out on Champions League by whiskers but have still managed to do a decent job getting the Europa League.

Leicester City have continuously competed for the top 4 spot under Rodgers, something Arsenal have failed to do under Mikel Arteta. Brendan Rodgers is a proven manager in the league but it will surely take a lot of convincing to get him at Arsenal as leaving an exciting team like Leicester will be a difficult process.
#1 Erik Ten Hag
Someone who was heavily linked with Manchester United, Erik Ten Hag is the man in demand in football at the moment. Ten Hag will be the perfect fit for Arsenal and there are a number of reasons which prove the same. His attacking fearless playing style which the Gunners are desperate for. His current record at Ajax, his perfect man-management, and the list goes on.
Erik ten Hag's record as Ajax manager:
◉ 185 games
◉ 135 wins (73% win rate)
◉ 25 draws
◉ 25 defeats
◉ 4 trophies
◎ 504 goals (2.7 per game)
◎ 157 conceded (0.85 per game)Advertisement

Erik Ten Hag will also get the most out of this Arsenal squad considering he knows how to deal with several youngsters. He is already managing well at Ajax. Ten Hag and Arsenal will be a match made in heaven as we look at the 3 managers that can replace Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.
