Arsenal succumbed to a 4-3 defeat to Liverpool in an incredibly exciting game at the Emirates Stadium.

Theo Walcott opened the scoring in the first half but Liverpool took over with four goals in 18 minutes.

Philippe Coutinho scored a stunning free-kick seconds before half time and Adam Lallana got on the scoresheet four minutes after the restart. Coutinho made it 3-1 before Sadio Mane introduced himself to Liverpool fans with a remarkable strike in the 63rd minute.

Goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calum Chambers proved to be worthless for the Gunners, who conceded four goals at the Emirates for the first time in seven years.

It’s been 12 years since Arsenal lifted the title and with Manchester City and Manchester United also getting their campaigns off to a winning start, there is a premature feeling among fans that their Premier League drought is going to continue.

Of course, supporters have directed their criticism at the man who has overseen their recent woes.

Arsene Wenger’s position was already under intense scrutiny; even more so now that Arsenal’s season has gotten off to a losing start for the second straight campaign.

Where's Ozil?

The Frenchman’s failure to add defensive reinforcements in the transfer window, as well as his decision to extend Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny’s recovery periods from Euro 2016, hasn’t gone down well on social media.

Plenty were unimpressed that he started Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla and Granit Xhaka on the bench, too.

Wenger brought Xhaka, a defensive-minded player, on with the score at 4-2. It's decisions like that that have caused fans to do into meltdown. 

It’s starting to feel like this could genuinely be Wenger’s final season at Arsenal.
