The pressure increased on Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Sunday after his side fell to a 2-1 defeat away to Brighton & Hove Albion in the English Premier League.
It was the Gunners first defeat to the Seagulls since 1982 and the 11th successive match they’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in the top-flight, their joint longest run in the competition.
Fans are questioning the short and long-term future of the club under the guidance of Wenger with many, as you’d expect, now wanting him him to leave the club.
The players haven’t escaped criticism either though, with many established first team stars taking plenty of flak in the wake of Sunday’s result.
One of those most heavily criticised was Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny, who looked shaky at the back all afternoon and gave away possession which led to the home side’s second goal.
Supporters are wondering where it’s all gone wrong for the 32-year-old, with others hoping he is axed this summer as they look to improve on their current woes.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…

players like @PetrCech @6_LKOSCIELNY are at the end. @PetrCech was brought in to grow players into leaders but no one has stepped up. now all we have is a spineless team with none! all the old heads are on their way to retirement.#AFC

Also, Koscielny is really bad, at this point i would rather play Rob Holding or Nacho at CB w Mustafi #afc

Defensively awful.! Koscielny has been demoralised by this dinosaur we have in charge. Mustafi looks like a championship player.! Chambers should not be in this side.! Iwobi looks out of his depth today even though I like him. Auba isn’t get the service he deserves.!

Koscielny has lost it. Mustafi and Cech are just awful but sad to see Kos play so poor this year.

Koscielny needs to help himself was hugely at fault for their second goal. Dreadful pass into midfield. Wilshere was no where near it. https://t.co/ho3JAw1QbB
