Arsenal booed off against Brighton and mocked on social media with hilarious memes

ARSENAL were booed off the pitch against Brighton and mercilessly mocked on social media for the inept showing.

The Gunners' winless streak stretched to nine matches - their worst run of form in 42 years - after crashing to a shock 2-1 defeat.

Brighton had more possession, more shots, more shots on target and were fouled more in a hapless 90 minute showing for the hosts.

Adam Webster took advantage of some slack defending to open the scoring before Neal Maupay grabbed the winner with 80 minutes on the clock.

Fans at the Emirates made their feelings clear on hearing the full-time whistle with a chorus of jeers.

Meanwhile many others took to Twitter to poke fun of the embattled North Londoners.

One furious Gunners fan tweeted: "We’re 15 games into the Premier League season and Arsenal have the same points as Newcastle.

"What in the actual f*** has happened to my club."

Another blamed Arsene Wenger for the current shambles, writing: "Man, Wenger left Arsenal in complete ruin.

"The entire club is so dysfunctional you wonder how they can ever become the Arsenal of old. Wenger has blood on his hands."

Others simply had a laugh at their expense...
