‘Worse now than ever’ Arsenal fans in meltdown ahead of Aston Villa clash
The Gunners, who are now three without a win in the Premier League, appeared to be coasting to a win at Vicarage Road before two individual errors gifted Watford a share of the spoils.
First a Bernd Leno short goal kick went wrong, letting Tom Cleverly in, before David Luiz brought Roberto Pereyra down in the area.
The Hornets would go on to miss two guilt edge chances and pass up the opportunity to steal all three points.
Dean Smith’s side have yet to pick up a point on the road, after two reversals in the capital already. They meet West Ham on Monday night, where a win would bring them up to 13th in the league.
Ahead of Sunday’s game in North London, we’ve taken a look across social media to try and get a flavour of how the Gunners fans are feeling.

@AJP227: If we draw against Villa next week, Emery should be sacked.
@DaBeardedGooner: We have the players in attack to thrash other sides. Our defence is tragic. Emery needs to play to the club’s strength right now Alas, we go again next Sunday at home against Villa. Better effort, better performance needed by ALL involved
@G8_AFC: Emery don’t know his best XI/tactics after all this time. He isn’t going to change overnight. We don’t have the time (with Auba & Laca at their age) to wait to see if performances/results get worse.
@NorthFiveLDN: After the summer business we were all expecting a ‘we will score more than you’ approach to games but it hasnt materialised. Obviously early in the season and we are missing some defenders but i hadnt expected us to be so poor going forward, barring Aubameyang brilliance
@M10Assist: Still don’t understand what the hell happened in that 2nd half. I genuinely thought we were cruising for a win. Obviously not. Emery is literally hanging on by a thread
@Arse3nalMan: On Emery there are too many big concerns, team selection, communication, tactics, Xhaka, players clearly not having him, the playing out from the back, even his own M record. Imo the club should make a big brave call & remove him NOW
@MasonWebb14: At this moment in time we genuinely only have one goal scorer in our team. I’m actually quite worried
How will Aston Villa get on at Arsenal?
0+ VOTES SO FAR
@Dashman95: Less you say about that #AFC performance the better, defensive shape inc midfielders was absolutely shocking – first major disappointment of the season, other clubs (Utd, Chels, Spurs, Everton) have all had them- shouldn’t get too carried away as people inevitably wil
@Deuce_kidd: Skipping every Arsenal review this week. We are recycling same old problems at this point. Hurts
@JoeyDawg8: Still fuming about yesterday. but you’ll cry if you dont laugh
@Davo_614: Emery on thin ice now. The performances have been awful for a long time and our defending is worse now than ever. Every team we play is having more shots than us because our attacking qualities have diminished as well. Just farcical
