Jason Cundy insists there is a chance Arsenal could get relegated from the Premier League this season.
The Gunners are 15th in the table after 12 games with their latest setback coming against struggling Burnley in a 1-0 home defeat on Sunday.
Arsenal have not been at the races this season
Mikel Artetas side have lost four of their past five league matches and face in-form Southampton next.
Former Chelsea striker Cundy is adamant any Arsenal fan who does not think their team is in a relegation battle is being incredibly naive.
He said on talkSPORT’s Sports Bar: Are Arsenal capable of getting a point at home to Liverpool right now [like Fulham did]? For me, no.
I saw the way Fulham played; they were unlucky against Everton, they were superb in the second-half.

They are playing a nice brand of football. There is a confidence about them, theres a style of play about them. I dont see that at Arsenal right now.
There are two parts to this question – are Arsenal in a relegation fight and do you think theyll go down? Both could be true.
Any Arsenal fan that thinks right now that theyre not in a relegation fight, I think theyre being incredibly naive.
Asked if he thinks Arteta can turn things around at the Emirates, Cundy replied: “I would say yes, but I dont think its going to be particularly attractive. It wont be a great season.

Cundy also reckons Arteta is trying to change too much at once in north London.
He added: Hes trying to change the culture of a football club and that is a very, very difficult thing to do. Certainly in your first managerial job.
There were definitely signs he was getting where he wanted to be.
There are many different ways of doing it and it would appear that this Arsenal job, if he is going to try to change the culture of it, is going to take a long, long time.
Arteta is in desperate need of a positive result in the league
Its going to take a lot of players leaving, a lot of players [coming] in. It feels like he may be trying to do too much, too soon to try to change the culture of this club.
It needs time – and are Arsenal going to give him that time to make that transition?
It may well take 18 months, but in that time, can Arsenal afford to be two or three points off the relegation zone?
