Arsenal end 41-hour Twitter silence

Published Add your comment

Arsenal Football Club's official Twitter account ended a silence closing in on two days earlier this morning, posting for the first time since Saturday's 6-0 humiliation at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Arsene Wenger's men marked his 1000th match in charge of the Gunners with nothing short of a capitulation against a direct title rival, which has led to an effective lockdown from the club on official channels in terms of communication regarding first-team affairs.

The Gunners have more than 3.6m followers on Twitter, but after posting Wenger's post-match reaction at 4.13pm on Saturday afternoon had nothing to say all weekend, with no reaction from club captain Thomas Vermaelen or any of the players that featured in their sixth league defeat of the season.

Team Twitter at Highbury House had Sunday off and also had nothing to report first thing on Monday morning, with Wenger's pre-match press conference for tomorrow night's Premier League clash with Swansea City cancelled.

Despite not being able to shed any light on the post-match inquest @Arsenal finally had something to post at 9.40am this morning, more than 41-hours after their last activity, although only to report that the Under-21 side were facing West Ham United at London Colney later today.

Wenger and his squad have little time to dwell on how they managed to capitulate so spectacularly against the Blues, with victory against Swansea urgently required to boost morale and revive any fleeting hopes of a late title push.

Securing the fourth and final Champions League spot should also be very high on Arsenal's list of priorities, with Tottenham Hotspur now six points behind following a last-gasp 3-2 victory over Southampton Sunday.
