Holders Arsenal were bundled out of the FA Cup in humiliating fashion on Sunday, losing 2-1 at the Emirates to Quique Sánchez Flores’s spirited Watford side.

 

Arsenal were unable to take a step closer to winning a historic hat-trick of FA Cups, with the Gunners falling to a shock defeat at home to Watford on Sunday. A stunning strike from Adlène Guédioura that put the Hornets 2-0 up was the highlight of the match, but the focus following the game was understandably on the Arsenal fans’ calls for manager Arsène Wenger to call it a day.

The Gunners’ supporters were also frustrated by French striker Olivier Giroud, who failed to make his mark on the game, and was outshone by second-half substitute Danny Welbeck.

Fans took to social media to declare that the defeat was effectively the end of Arsenal’s season, while some wondered what this repeated failure would mean for the club in terms of keeping their star players Mesut Özil and Alexis Sánchez at the Emirates.

Here are the best reactions from the game:
