– North Londoners crash out of FA Cup, Champions League in same week
Another season, heartbreak for Arsenal FC supporters. The Arsene Wenger’s men have now crashed out of all cup competitions, with only the league – where they are currently off the pace – their only hope of silverware.
Fans of rival teams around the world took to social media to mock the team’s shambolic displays both in the FA Cup defeat to Odion Ighalo-inspired Watford FC and Barcelona in the Champions League.
