Arsenal fans are furious with what Alex Iwobi did vs Leicester

Leicester City v Arsenal - Premier League

Arsene Wenger's penultimate game as Arsenal manager ended in awful fashion, suffering a 3-1 hammering at the hands of Leicester City.

The Gunners conceded and went down to 10 men within the opening quarter of an hour, with Kelechi Iheanacho scoring before Konstantinos Mavropanos was given his marching orders.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then gave Arsenal a shock equaliser, but a Jamie Vardy penalty and Riyad Mahrez's late finish condemned the visitors to yet another defeat on the road.

It means Wenger's side have kept up their record of losing every single Premier League away fixture in 2018, a hugely unwanted and embarrassing stat, and one they will be keen to end at Huddersfield on Sunday.

Leicester on the other hand put to bed their run of five matches without a win, and kept alive their hopes of finishing above Everton in 8th, but face a tough ask at Wembley against Spurs in their final game.

Whoever takes the Arsenal job will have a lot of work on his hands to mend this misfiring team, and one that has continued to slide after missing out on the Champions League last season.

That was the first time that had happened in 19 seasons, but they are now an awfully long way behind the other clubs in the 'top six'.

And that is even after adding Alexandre Lacazette and Aubameyang to their ranks for a collective £120m, which shows how bad a season it's been.


And the suffering supporters were provided with another low on the football field tonight, thanks to one of their own.

Alex Iwobi managed to pretty much sum up the Gunners' season in the form of a shot in the second half, as they were at that point chasing a winner.

As you can see below, it was quite frankly horrendous.

How the Nigerian managed to strike it so wildly high and wide is quite astonishing, just about escaping the added shame of it going out for a throw in.

Iwobi has only got three Premier League goals this term, and you can see why with efforts like that.

Arsenal fans on Twitter were absolutely furious with the shot and the performance, and didn't hold back in their criticism of him.

It's pretty clear that, despite being a product of the Gunners' academy, he isn't exactly a fans' favourite at the Emirates.

Iwobi is still only 22 years old however, and will surely continue to improve given the necessary game time by Wenger's successor.

You can only imagine the backlash if Arsenal are beaten again at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday, especially with a performance akin to that tonight, albeit with 10 men.

The players all owe the fans and Wenger a performance, and given the thoughts shared on Twitter, Iwobi is certainly one of those.
