Arsenal fans target Henrikh Mkhitaryan after Watford showing

Arsenal’s supporters have flooded to social media this evening to take aim at Henrikh Mkhitaryan, following the former Manchester United man’s disappointing performance versus Watford.

Watford 0-1 Arsenal

Unai Emery’s men travelled to Vicarage Road a short time ago, in the Gunners’ latest crucial outing in their bid to secure a Champions League berth for next season.

Ahead of kick-off, Arsenal sat in 6th-place in the Premier League table.

However, the North Londoners headed into proceedings aware that a victory would see them leapfrog both Chelsea and Manchester United into 4th.

And, when all was said and done at Vicarage Road, secure a vital 3 points was exactly what the capital giants managed.

The only goal of the game came with 10 minutes gone, as a moment to forget for Watford shot-stopper Ben Foster saw the former English international take far too long on the ball, leading to his attempted clearance being deflected home by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Hornets’ captain Troy Deeney was given his marching orders just moments after the restart for a needless elbow on Lucas Torreira, with Arsenal, despite failing to take advantage of their extra man, having eventually held on to secure victory.

Mkhi disappoints

While the Gunners’ result proved exactly what was required, the performance of Unai Emery’s men left a lot to be desired.

A number of the visitors’ stars simply failed to perform, though one player in particular has since been singled out for heavy criticism by the club’s supporters.

The individual in question is Henrikh Mkhitaryan, after the Armenian struggled to make any sort of positive impact on proceedings tonight.

In addition, ‘Mkhi’ left his shooting boots very much at home, with a number of wayward strikes on the part of the 30-year-old, particularly during the second-half, having left the Gunners’ faithful utterly bemused.

‘Rather play with ten men’
