Arsenal were left bitterly disappointed on Saturday after being defeated by Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League at Wembley Stadium.
Arsene Wenger’s side did not produce anywhere near their best in the North London Derby and are now six points behind fourth place, with the prospect of UEFA Champions League football next season looking slim.
In truth Tottenham could have ended up with a heavier margin of victory than the 1-0 scoreline, with Petr Cech making a string of saves to deny Mauricio Pochettino’s rampant side.
It was a result and performance that left Gunners supporters fuming, with many left wondering where their side go from here.
Much of the criticism was aimed at defender Laurent Koscielny after he failed to deal with the Tottenham attack. His performance was so poorly received that some fans are calling for him to be dropped and sold at the end of the season.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
A massive defensive overhaul is needed at @Arsenal in the Summer. A replacement for #Cech needs to identified and signed ASAP!!!! #Bellerin needs competition at RB, he also needs to work on his crossing. #Koscielny needs to be replaced and we need to sign a "WORLDCLASS" CDM#AFC

Don’t understand why Koscielny doesn’t jump and attack a ball entering or box even though he’s seen the run of Kane? Geezer has lead in he’s boots. #afc

You know how in @FootballManager it tells you a player has gone from being 'good' to being a leading player in the premier league?' Well its the opposite for Koscielny. He's now an average premier league player. Man is on a serious decline . #AFC
