It's just been three games into the 2017-18 Premier League season and Arsenal already seem to be in a crisis. The London club received a sound thrashing on Sunday at the hands of rivals Liverpool at Anfield. This was Arsenal's second loss this season, following their 0-1 defeat to Stoke City. On Sunday, Arsenal were not just defeated 0-4 but completely humiliated by a Liverpool team that had played a Champions League qualification match mid-week. The loss means the Londoners languish in 16th place in the standings with just one point.

Football pundits put Arsenal players to the sword and on Monday, it was the turn of twitterati to mock the team and its supporters.

One decision that angered even Arsenal fans was manager Arsene Wenger's move to leave new signing Alexandre Lacazette on the bench.

Arsenal's defeat, their second in succession, exhibited failings that have become endemic under Wenger.

Defensive disorganisation allowed Liverpool to take control of the game and Arsenal's over-eagerness to get back into the match left them hopelessly exposed on the counter-attack.

It surely was not a good to be an Arsenal supporter, and rival fans didn't hold back to rub salt on their wounds.
