Arsenal icon Ian Wright led the condemnation of the Gunners' performance in their embarrassing loss to Crystal Palace, saying: "At least I tried."

As the Gunners suffered another serious blow to their Champions League hopes - and manager Arsene Wenger to his standing among the fans - criticism rained in.

Writing on Twitter, Wright, the club's second-highest goalscorer, said: "Wow, some of the comments I get from Arsenal fans on here.

"At least I f*****g tried! That dressing room is lost. Brilliant stuff palace."

Wenger said of the result: "I'm disappointed and determined to put things right.

"Tonight the worry is not me, it's the fact that we lost a big game and when you lose a big game it's a big worry.

"It's a difficult defeat but on top of that it has consequences on our chances to be in the top four.

"We understand that our fans are very unhappy.

"I have managed over a thousand games for Arsenal Football Club and we are not used to that and it's a big worry. We have to respond very quickly and not accept it."
