Arsene Wenger blames the media for forcing Arsenal fans to turn on their club following their loss against Liverpool.

Wenger insists that Arsenal aren’t in crisis after losing just one game  against Liverpool and blames the media for encouraging Gooners to get on the club’s back.

What Wenger conveniently ignores is that the defeat at Anfield wasn’t just a loss. It was a 4-0 humiliation, which involved Jurgen Klopp’s side playing the Gunners off the park. Not because they were exceptionally good but because Arsenal were horrific and looked as if they didn’t want to be there.

This was then followed by a bizarre £92m Deadline Day rush for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain signed for the club that had just thumped his team – with him in the side – and Alexis Sanchez tried to get a move to Manchester City.

What’s more, this wasn’t just one loss. It was another in a long line of shambolic performances that have been mounting up over the last decade.

Many hoped that finishing fifth last season would be a wake-up call but apparently not as the team look even worse, Wenger is reeling off the same excuses and even more players want to leave.

Arsenal host Bournemouth on Saturday (3pm kick-off) and while there must be a few hopeful Gooners still out there, I don’t know any of them.
