Crystal Palace 3-0 Arsenal: Gunners back to losing ways with humiliating defeat [Best Tweets]

Arsenal reverted to their terrible form in 2017 after falling to a hugely disappointing 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace on Monday night. Wenger’s side looked to have finally turned things around with a 3-0 victory over West Ham but the respite was clearly short-lived for fans.

The Gunners were – just like they have been for weeks – limp in both attack and defense and hardly threatened the home side. Andros Townsend opened the scoring after some poor defending from Arsenal before Yohan Cabaye doubled the lead with a brilliant finish.

Townsend then went down under little contact in the Arsenal penalty area but Emiliano’s recklessness meant Palace were handed a penalty and Milivojevic made no mistake from the spot. Arsenal fans can have no complaints as Palace more than deserved the victory.

That didn’t stop several people from complaining, however, crying foul on Townsend’s penalty call.

Shkodran Mustafi – who started the season strongly but has regressed along with the rest of the team – was roundly criticised for his performance, along with Granit Xhaka with both being signed in the summer for significant fees.

And, of course, Arsene Wenger came in for heavy criticism after Arsenal quite simply submitted to yet another defeat from a well-drilled side.
