Arsenal fans are furious on Twitter after Swansea defeat

Arsenal fans are well known for their Twitter meltdowns but this might just be the greatest one yet.

The Gunners went into their home match against Swansea knowing they needed a win to make up for their disappointing 3-2 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday.

They started the night six points behind league leaders Leicester but aware that if they won their game in hand, they would be just three points behind the Foxes.

And it appeared they would get their title bid back on track when Joel Campbell scored a brilliant half-volley after just 15 minutes.

But Wayne Rutledge equalised 17 minutes later, meaning the two sides went in all level at half-time.

A big second-half was needed by Arsene Wenger’s men, especially considering that fellow title rivals Tottenham and Manchester City were trailing.

But an Ashley Williams goal with 15 minutes remaining consigned the Gunners to their second defeat in four days and rip apart their campaign.

As expected, Gooners were absolutely fuming on social media:

Defeats for both Arsenal, Spurs and City mean that Leicester are once again title favourites. The Foxes remain three points ahead of Spurs, six points above Arsenal while City are ten points adrift - although they have a game in hand.

Arsenal will have to pick themselves up immediately though as they travel across north London as they take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

The Saturday lunchtime clash will represent the most important match between the two rivals in living memory, especially given their result tonight.

As you can see above, Arsenal fans are far from happy with their manager Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman’s reluctance to spend big has meant the Emirates club haven’t won a Premier League title since 2004.

Surely if he fails to deliver the league title, it’s time for him to leave

The club also face elimination from the Champions League after losing 2-0 at home to Barcelona in the first-leg of their last-16 clash.

However, Wenger could be looking towards the FA Cup yet again as they look to salvage something from their season. The club have won the competition in the previous two seasons but surely a sole FA Cup trophy won’t be enough to keep Gooners happy this season.

Meanwhile, the incredible three points picked up by the Swans on Wednesday could prove vital.

The Welsh club began the match in 16th, just three points above the relegation zone but their brilliant win has given them breathing space from the drop zone.
