Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration over today's 2-0 loss against West Ham - with new signing Petr Cech bearing the brunt of the criticism.

Expectations were high before the Gunners' curtain-raiser against their London rivals at the Emirates Stadium today, however goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate burst Arsene Wenger's bubble.

Chief amongst the culprits for the defeat was Cech, who has been hailed as a potentially decisive in Arsenal's challenge to win their first Premier League title in ten years following his £10 million switch from Chelsea earlier on in the summer.

The 33-year-old came rushing out of his goal but missed the ball for the Hammers' opener, while he was slow to react as Zarate doubled the visitors' lead - although Arsenal's defending left much to be desired.

Typically the Arsenal faithful, some of whom were pictured walking out of the Emirates Stadium before the final whistle, took to Twitter to give their verdict on Cech's underwhelming performance, as well as Arsenal as a whole.

One wrote: 'Cech will help us win the league' great banter', while another added: 'OMG Cech is awful, bring back Szczesny!'

Comedian and Arsenal fan Matt Lucas also chipped in, tweeting: "Arsene in his office right now, rummaging through drawers - 'now where did I put that receipt for Cech?'

It got much worse for Arsenal and Cech as Chelsea fans waded in on the debate as well, barely hiding their glee at the fact that the veteran shotstopper struggled to emulate his fine performances in a blue shirt.

Next up for Arsenal is a trip to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace, and Cech will certainly be hoping to put in a stronger performance next time round.

What score do you give Cech out of ten for his performance against West Ham?
