Arsenal plummeted to new depths of despair last night at Selhurst Park as they were thrashed by relegation-threatened Crystal Palace.

Long-serving boss Arsene Wenger had already come under heavy fire after stagnating at the club after 21 years in charge.

However, the 3-0 drubbing in south London proved the final straw for most Gunners fans as they turned on their own players and manager.

The travelling supporters chanted “we want Wenger out” and “you’re not fit to wear the shirt” during the humiliating defeat.

Those under-fire players were then subjected to more abuse as the team coach left the stadium with Arsenal’s Champions League qualification hopes in tatters.

It was all too much to take for supporters following the match on social media and Gunners fans will be dreading their walk into the office this morning.

Arsenal Fan TV has become a post-match favourite to witness every Gunners meltdown in all its glory – and it didn’t disappoint at Selhurst Park…

The #WengerOut Twitter campaign went into overdrive and the Frenchman was ridiculed again…

There was even a new hashtag trending on Twitter…

Wenger, who is out of contract at the end of the season, might not be the only one leaving the Emirates this summer…

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher didn’t hold back in his assessment of the situation…

The result leaves Arsenal in sixth place and seven points off the top four with eight games left.

“I’ve managed over 1,100 games for Arsenal and we’re not used to losing like that,” Wenger said.

“I understand our fans are disappointed and we all are deeply disappointed.

“It’s very worrying and disappointing the way we lost the game. Palace were sharp, they beat Chelsea the other day, and that shows they have quality.

“We are in a difficult position. The game tonight doesn’t help.”

Next up for the Gunners is a long trip to Middlesbrough, who are also fighting for survival, on Easter Monday.

Lose that and it might be the end for Wenger.
