Per Mertesacker doesn’t give a…
Arsenal is a mess. That’s pretty safe to say at this point.
Having just crashed out of the FA Cup over the weekend (because of a shocking loss to big, bad, lower-division dwellers Blackburn Rovers), Arsene Wenger desperately needed the ends to justify the means today… meaning the key players he left on the bench against Blackburn (Wilshere, Walcott, Cazorla), really needed to validate that decision with a strong performance/good result against Bayern Munich in the UCL. No such luck.
They kept decent possession, but just couldn’t quite create/convert enough opportunities… You know who did capitalize on good opportunities though? Arsenal/EPL fans. Plenty of “kick a team while it’s down” action on Twitter:
Time to focus on the one trophy that really matters – coming 4th in the Premier League.#Arsenal
