Mustafi delivers Twitter verdict ahead of Arsenal v Hull

There were questions marks over whether Alexis Sanchez’s opening goal should have been disallowed for handball Glyn Kirk

"Mourinho wants to win every game and at the end of the season sometimes he has success but, for Arsene, Arsenal didn't win from 2004 so everybody starts to criticise him because football has changed".

Gonzalo Higuain doubled their advantage with 16 minutes remaining to wrap up a fourth consecutive win for Allegri's side as they march towards another Serie A title.

"A significant number of season ticket holders now pick and choose the games they come to", Payton admitted.

Arsenal will look to get their season back on track when we welcome Hull City to the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime.

"Aside from the fact we have a contract with Allegri, I think there are still great targets we need to achieve together and our rapport is very good", Marotta told Mediaset Premium.

"The way we respond to a disappointing result last Saturday is vital".

That shows the divide within the fanbase now, and it begs the question how two individuals who have no connection to Arsenal football club can be received in such contrasting ways to fit agendas and preferences.

Our fans have been consistent and have a high level of expectation as I do but I don't feel you can be a fan until last Tuesday and then not be behind the team any more - it doesn't make sense.

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal's lack of central midfielders has hurt the team during its current slump, but insisted there's no reason to "go overboard" when it comes to reacting to last week's losses.

"Wenger chooses when he leaves", said Sutton. The Gunners will be hoping that this encounter is far more straight forward.

Arsenal are still without Aaron Ramsey (calf) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles), although Mohamed Elneny is returning after defeat in the Africa Cup of Nations final with Egypt. Granit Xhaka is still suspended. Hector Bellerin meanwhile is still undergoing tests after coming off against Chelsea with a head injury.

11% of Arsenal fans who took part in the HITC Sport voted for the Frenchman to stay at the club.

Many fans are eager for a new manager to take a seat in the Emirates dugout, one who can inject fresh ideas and philosophies, and in turn mount a serious title challenge. I don't know. But what he must do there is mental work.
