Well that was a disaster Arsenal fans. Instead of moving up to 4th and one point behind Man City, the Gunners lost to and were leapfrogged by Swansea City and are now in 6th position, one point ahead of our next opponents Man United.

The manager has to take a big part of the blame as well, because when Arsenal should have got at Swansea early on and capitalised on them losing three key players to injury in Routledge, Dyer and Fernandez. And then when we should have been more defensive and protected what we had after Alexis had scored, Swansea equalised with a counter attack.

There were just two defenders back as the Gunners lost the ball high up the pitch. You would think that we would have learned a lesson from Tuesday against Anderlecht, but maybe that is too much to ask. What a great chance we had to go into the international break in a good position and in a good frame of mind!

How do you think the feeling in the dressing room was after that game? And it should have been buoyant. There are big questions for the manager now and the players have to step up. But have Arsenal blown it?
