Arsenal fans have blasted their players in the wake of their defensive collapse against French club Rennes in the first leg of their last 16 ties in the Europa League.

After the game, a lot of Gunners’ faithfuls took to social media via Goal to slam the players for their display in the 3-1 loss to Rennes in France.

Arsenal players like Nacho Monreal, Matteo Guendouzi and many more were not spared by the fans.

The North Londoners have it all to do after they surrendered an early lead to lose against a team currently in 10th spot on the French Ligue 1 table.

Alex Iwobi gave Arsenal a bright start as early as the 4th minute and the Gunners were in control until the 41St minute when the Gunners were reduced to ten men after Greek international Sokratis Papasthathopoulos was sent off after a second and contentious yellow card.

Rennes equalised through Benjamin Borigeaud some minutes later before goals from Nacho Monreal (own goal) and Ismaila Sarr gave the French club a fantastic lead ahead of the second leg at the Emirates Stadium next week Thursday.

Arsenal will have to score two unreplied goals against Rennes to secure one of the last eigspotspot in the Europa League.
