Arsenal fans react as Atletico Madrid drop into the Europa League

Atletico Madrid were one of the teams to drop into the Europa League following their 1-1 draw in their final Champions League group game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, and Arsenal fans were quick to have their say on the news.

The Gunners are one of the favourites to win the Europa League and have already qualified for the knockout stages, but now they have been joined by the likes of Atletico, Celtic, CSKA Moscow and Sporting Lisbon after those teams finished third in their Champions League groups.
