Arsenal fans had every right to be furious with their side’s performance against Manchester City.
The Gunners looked on course for the three points having dominated the early stages, Theo Walcott opening the scoring after just five minutes.
However, Arsene Wenger’s men bizarrely started to let City off the hook, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling hitting back for the hosts.
Wenger had plenty of excuses lined up after the final whistle, questioning whether both City goals were offside. The truth is, though, that he only had his players to blame for failing to go on the attack once they were behind away from home.
In fact, a video has been doing the rounds on social media which sums up Arsenal’s shocking mentality.
Take a look, particularly at Mesut Ozil:

If you were an Arsenal fan who’d paid good money to go to the Etihad, you’d have to feel pretty aggrieved after watching that.
That’s now two successive defeats on the bounce after the defeat to Everton last week, and they’re now nine points behind Chelsea, who in turn show no signs of letting up in the title race.
Even aside from the abuse he gets week-in, week-out from Arsenal fans, Wenger was getting his fair share of stick from everywhere for allowing his players to get away with another, quite literally, pedestrian performance. And Ozil didn’t go unnoticed either.
Imagine Ozil in Klopp or Conte's team walking. Conte threatens to kill his players, he actually would kill Ozil & Klopp would demote to u23

Gary Neville reminding us all how lazy Ozil is. Walking around like a headless chicken when your team is losing 2-1. World class.
