‘I hope he gets injured again!’ – Twitter bashes Arsenal star and Wenger’s decision after Liverpool draw
Arsenal gained a point from a tough trip to Anfield on Wednesday but the manner in which that point was secured is what has left most fans fuming.
After doing well to snatch and protect a 3-2 lead for over 30 minutes, the Gunners conceded a late equalizer at Liverpool for the second season in a row.
Arsenal were still ahead when club captain Mikel Arteta was introduced in the dying minutes and despite not being directly responsible for Joe Allen’s goal, frustrated fans did not spare him and his manager the blame after the final whistle.
Here were the reactions…
Why is it the moment Arteta comes on the whole team falls apart no matter the opposition

Hate doing this but Chambers should have come on NOT Arteta and rather than bring Gibbs on I'd have been more comfortable with Gabriel.

@OzilAssist Chambers over Arteta I thought personally, how that man is captain I don't know.

It's not good to wish someone evil, but Arteta being injured is the only way Wenger removes his head from his butt when making subs #afc

Really blows my mind, that Arteta is still at Arsenal. How is this possible? He hasn't been good for about 4 seasons
