Brendan Rodgers sacked: AXED Liverpool manager steals Arsenal’s Twitter thunder on Super Sunday

Arsenal fans had their thunder stolen by Brendan Rodgers on Sunday night.

Delighted Gooners flooded onto Twitter to hail Alexis Sanchez and boast about their side’s 3-0 win over Manchester United.

Arsenal supporters are hard to beat when it comes to social media.

However, following confirmation from Liverpool that Rodgers had been sacked as manager following his side’s 1-1 draw at Everton, Twitter’s top trending term quickly changed from ‘Arsenal’ to ‘Brendan Rodgers’.

To give competitive Twitter-proud Gooners some small consolation, ‘Ramsey’, ‘Sanchez’ ‘Ozil’ and – rather perversely – ‘#WengerOut’ were all among the top 10 trending terms in the UK at around 7pm.

Nevertheless, Rodgers was the main topic on the agenda and the best of the reaction can be read below…
