Arsenal were again left with soul searching to do this season after suffering another English Premier League defeat on Sunday.
Having previously lost three times in the league already this term, Arsene Wenger and his side needed a result to keep the pressure on the top four sides in the table but didn’t have enough to compete with leaders Manchester City at the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola’s side were comfortable across the 90 minutes, winning 3-1 thanks to Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
All the Gunners could muster in reply was an Alexandre Lacazette strike, which failed to ignite the second half comeback Wenger will have hoped for.
Fans were of course desperately disappointed and were actually left angry by some of the performances of the players, most notably those of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
Arguably Arsenal’s best players on their day, the influential duo couldn’t get anything done against City.
With their contracts up at the end of the season, supporters are growing sick of them, with some even calling for them to be shown the door as soon as possible.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
I was wondering whether Sanchez would play 100% for the team. After today, I want him sold in January. #afc

Ozil should have been let go in the summer and, on that viewing, Sanchez too. Another season playing for the fourth place trophy. 🙄 #AFC

I do love them both but Sanchez and Özil failed to turn up today. We’re now 12 points behind the leaders and it’s only November 🙄😒😡👇🏾 #AFC

Sanchez and Ozil are not irreplaceable. Get them out the door asap. #afc
