‘He is just useless, embarrassing’, Fans furious with Arsenal star after Man City loss

0

Arsenal plunged to their second defeat in four days after Manchester City came from behind to beat the Gunners 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday evening.

The North London club have been in excellent form lately and have gone 14 games unbeaten in the Premier League before their shock defeat to Everton in the midweek.

Walcott gave the visitors an early lead with a cool slotted finish, but Leroy Sane tied things up in the opening minutes of the second half. The Citizens dominated the possession there after, and Raheem Sterling completed the comeback with 20 minutes to go.

The Emirates club were were defensively disciplined and offensively dangerous in the first half and the prospects of closing the gap on League leaders Chelsea were very rosy. However, a dismal second half display where they were behind City in every aspect of the game meant that the Gunners lost their second game in a row after taking an initial lead.

Most of the Arsenal players carried on their abysmal form from Goodison Park but one player in particular was on the receiving end of some strong criticism from the fans, that being Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista.

Gabriel Paulista has started back to back games this week and Arsenal have appeared defensively vulnerable in both those games. City’s lack of a focal point in attack gave him and Koscielny lot of decisions to make when marking players, and in the second half he started to get beaten defensively.

When Arsenal needed composure on the ball after they went 2-1 down, he wasn’t there to be that rock in the center. Mustafi is sorely missed at the minute. The fans were less than impressed with Gabriel’s performance and were quite ruthless on his overall display.

Here are some of the reactions from Twitter:

He might get a few run-ins during the festive season

Not particularly a disaster, but a really bad game

Look pretty tenacious while playing as center-back

No pun intended, I guess

Villarreal to be exact

He was until few weeks back?

Well said. He was definitely poor, but fans needed a scape goat

Oh come on, now Monreal too?

I don’t agree, Sorry
