Arsenal Fans React on Social Media to Defender’s ‘Garbage’ Europa League Semi-Final Performance

​Arsenal fans took to Twitter on Thursday night after their team ​drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi final, and didn’t seem to be best pleased.

Arsenal have had a disappointing season so far after missing out on a top four finish in the Premier League for the second consecutive year. To win the Europa League will be the only saving grace for Arsene Wenger’s last season in charge, and the Gunners will want to send him off having won silverware. 


​Arsenal were on the front foot for most of the game against Atletico Madird, after the visitors were reduced to ten men just 13 minutes in.

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring for the home team, before Laurent Koscielny failed to deal with a long ball which put Antoine Griezmann through on the Arsenal goal. 

Griezmann cooly slotted home drawing Atletico level, prompting angry reactions from Arsenal fans on social media to Koscielny’s performance. 



​​The animosity towards Koscielny is understandable from Arsenal fans, but the Gunners should have been out of sight in the game. If anything it was missed chances that cost them the advantage heading into the second leg, rather than Koscielny’s later error.
