An own goal from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and a Junior Fernandes header were enough to see off the Gunners. Theo Walcott hit the back of the net in reaction, but it wasn’t enough to inspire them back in to the match.
To make matters worse, Olivier Giroud was sent off for two yellow cards. The first caution was for dissent, while the second was received for a clumsy challenge. This has brought the North Londoners’ inability to sign a new forward over the summer in to a harsher light.
Supporters appear to have lost patience, despite the team turning things around in the Premier League after a 0-3 loss to West Ham during the opening weekend of the season. They are now in fourth place, and five points behind leaders Manchester City.
This doesn’t take away from the fact that the Gunners have failed to live up to expectations in the Champions League for many years.
Here is what some of the fans have had to say…
Apparently we don’t have the cash to compete with Dinamo Zagreb #wengerout
