Arsenal’s top-four hopes suffered a blow at the Hawthorns this afternoon, as the north London outfit slumped to a disappointing 3-1 defeat to West Brom.

The result heaps more pressure on the under-fire Arsene Wenger, whose spell with the Gunners has hit a new nadir this season.

Craig Dawson put the home side ahead in the 12th minute before Alexis Sanchez - who else? - equalised three minutes later with an emphatic finish.

This one carried a banner which read: ‘In Arsene We Trust #RespectAW’.

However, following today’s loss, you’ll do well to find too many Arsenal fans who are #WengerIn.

This was another disastrous result for a team that looks totally bereft of confidence.

Seventy-five seconds later and Robson-Kanu had put West Brom 2-1 up following some calamitous Arsenal defending.

Needless to say, everyone has been ripping the p*** out of the guy since…
