After Crystal Palace’s recent win at Stamford Bridge, did Arsenal fans really expect them to just roll over and hand the Gunners three points?
Sam Allardyce’s team are fighting for their Premier League survival and before Monday night’s game at Selhurst Park they had won four of their last five games – only Tottenham and Leicester had better form in the last five games.
So it should have come as no surprise to the Arsenal fans that the Eagles would be scrapping for everything.
The fact that it also happened to be Palace’s first home win over the Gunners in 38 years probably served to highlight Arsenal’s traditional dominance over one of London’s less fashionable clubs, and that predictably made the Gunners’ faithful all the more angry.
Cue the latest assault in the #Wengerout campaign, as the Arsenal coach took over Twitter!

"Bet Arsenal fans wish they were sponsored by United Airlines and not Emirates then someone would drag Wenger from his seat" (@J_Modaberi )

No matter what position Arsenal now finish in, Arsène Wenger has to walk away this summer. Absolutely pathetic. No desire left in that team.

This Arsenal team's the most gutless shower Wenger's ever fielded. I'd clear most of them out, along with the manager. #afc

Wenger says it would damage Arsenal if Oxlade Chamberlain leaves but leaves him on the bench until 3-0 down. Strange.

No fight, no enthusiasm, no passion, no pride. #WengerOut
