Arsenal have announced that they will offer to buy another away ticket for those fans who travelled to Old Trafford to watch their team lose 8-2 to Manchester United on Sunday.

Around 3,000 fans are thought to have made the 400-mile round trip to Manchester , only to see their team humiliated by the Red Devils. Manager Arsene Wenger and his inexperienced team were widely criticised for their showing on the pitch, but the travelling support gained widespread praise for backing their team throughout.

The north London club confirmed on Monday that they would be offering to compensate the supporters who made the trip by paying for a ticket for another away game.

"Arsenal Football Club has announced it will be writing to fans who travelled to Old Trafford on Sunday with an offer to cover the cost of a match ticket at a future Barclays Premier League away game," a club statement read.

"Sunday's result was obviously disappointing for everyone connected with the club. Our travelling fans were magnificent throughout and we want to recognise their fantastic support. We will be writing to them shortly with the details."
