Arsenal succumbed to their 6th defeat in the last 9 games, as Tony Pulis’ West Bromwich Albion recorded a 3-1 win over the Gunners. There was much drama at the start of the game, with the two factions of Arsenal fans flying planes with banners regarding Arsene Wenger’s future.
Amidst all the planes carrying banners, Craig Dawson opened the scoring for the home side in the 12th minute. The Gunners equalised through Alexis Sanchez only a few minutes later before Petr Cech had to be taken off due to a thigh injury and on came David Ospina.
Hal-Robson Kanu put the hosts again in front in the second half, scoring within minutes of coming on as a substitute. Although there were suspicions of offside and the goal probably shouldn’t have stood. WBA completed the rout when Dawson thumped a header past Ospina to make it 3-1 and put Arsenal’s top 4 hopes in jeopardy.
In their last 9 games, Arsenal have won only against Sutton United, Lincoln City and Hull City, two out of them being non-league oppositions.
Twitter didn’t hold back as Arsenal fans rued the demise of their season while fans of other clubs trolled them.
