Arsenal suffered their fourth defeat in five matches on Thursday night, losing 3-0 to Manchester City for the second time in just five days.
After their heavy Carabao Cup Final defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side on Sunday, Gunners fans were hoping for an improved performance in the league at the Emirates, not least because they badly need every point they can get right now.
Arsene Wenger’s outfit failed to deliver though and the loss means their hopes of a top four finish in the English Premier League have all but been extinguished.
Supporters were left fuming not just with the result but also the manner in which they conceded goals and generally failed to compete with their visitors.
The likes of Hector Bellerin, who was once an immensely popular character with fans, are lacking confidence and failing to produce football that allows them to challenge at the top end of the table.
Fans were critical of the Spaniard and took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Cech – Old & average
Ospina – 30 & average
Per- Final season
Koscielny- 33, achilles problem, declining
Mustafi – 25, shit
Nacho – 32, good
Holding & Chambers – in between average to good
Bellerin – declined beyond imagination
Kolasinac – No comments

Chech is past it. I love Kos but he's had his best years & is unfortunately not the player he was. Mustafi is a liability. Bellerin has been poor this season. Xhaka can't cut it. Iwobi is poor & Welbz isn't "that guy". #Arsenal #AFC
