Arsenal succumbed to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool with the Gunners looking clueless for the better part of the game.
Arsenal went into the game with a point to prove after their defeat to Stoke and were handed a boost in the form of Alexis Sanchez. But, the game ended up being a heavily one-sided affair, with Liverpool running rampant at Anfield, finishing the game with a 4-0 scoreline.
No Arsenal player was spared on the day, with special emphasis on Mesut Ozil.
Coutinho did more that game than Ozil.

Remember when Fergie decided he didn’t fancy Ozil?

Whilst the transfer market is this crazy, #AFC should sell Ozil for big £ & buy someone who cares for the shirt. Too many times a passenger

Ozil showing Europe’s best why they made a good decision ignoring him this summer. Embarrassing.

Three, maybe four, players on the pitch don’t even want to be at the club, so that doesn’t help (Sanchez, Ox, Ozil and Bellerin)

The way Ozil was just dispossessed there sums him up as a player. He’s dreaming.

Mesut Ozil is a joke. Doesn’t give a toss about playing for Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger, though, bore the brunt again, with weird roster selections and a shambolic performance from his chosen starting eleven.

If you still support Arsene Wenger then your support for Arsenal Football Club has to be questioned. #WengerOut

Arsène Wenger signed the left back from last season’s Bundesliga Team of the Year and then dropped him for a winger who wants to leave.

Arsene Wenger At Arsenal;
An analog manager…
In a digital world.

But, the main protagonist was made out to be Danny Welbeck, who was chosen in front of Lacazette and was largely disappointing.
Selling Welbeck to Arsenal for £16M is surely the greatest piece of business United have ever done.

Buying kolasinac and playing Bellerin as LWB.
Buying Lacazette and playing Welbeck.
Only Arsenal.very very poor by Wenger
— Lacatoes (@Cechque) August 27, 2017
Lacazette on bench while Welbeck is on and we want to score. Kolasinac is on the bench and Bellerin out of position and we want to defend.

So Arsene Wenger spent Almost £50million on a new striker and he is still playing Danny welbeck? This Man should just resign…

They gave us Van Persie and the league and we gave them Welbeck zheienwjiwowkwwkhahaha
