It’s been a disastrous 10 days or so for Arsenal Football Club.
Any optimism billed over the summer and after their dramatic 4-3 win over Leicester on the opening day of the season has gone up in flames after embarrassing defeats to Stoke and Liverpool.
On the pitch their players have been accused by both pundits and fans for some truly abject displays while an exodus looks likely this week before the end of the transfer window.
And it appears some disgruntled fans’ abuse got too much for one the Gunners flops after that 4-0 humiliation at Anfield on Sunday.

That’s because Granit Xhaka has had to disable his comments on Instagram after he uploaded a photo of himself at an airport on Monday morning.
Xhaha was subject to a torrent of abuse in the immediate aftermath, with many Gunners supporters hedging the blame on him for the first two Liverpool goals.
As a result the Swiss midfielder, who was yesterday awarded his country’s Player of the Year award, made the decision to remove the feature.
It hasn’t stopped Arsenal fans bombarding his previous photos with negative comments though.
Xhaka also revealed he doesn’t feel he can show his face in London after the drubbing on Merseyside.
He told ESPN: “I’m not going out after a 4-0 loss against Liverpool.”
What Xhaka needs now is a trip to the Winchester and wait for it all to blow over…
