Arsenal fans lambast players on team bus after Crystal Palace defeat

Arsene Wenger attempts to underplay Arsenal's abysmal performance against Crystal Palace, citing only their lack of scoring.
After a shock defeat to Palace, Craig Burley lambastes Arsenal's ownership for having let Arsene Wenger remain in power.

Arsenal fans surrounded the team bus after Monday's 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, hurling abuse at the players and manager Arsene Wenger.

More than 100 travelling supporters waited for the team to emerge from the dressing room and vented their anger as the players boarded the bus.

Some shouted for Wenger to leave, while others singled out individual Arsenal stars for criticism.

"Not good enough, Mesut," one fan shouted as Mesut Ozil walked toward the bus.

Another yelled out that Ozil's fellow German Shkodran Mustafi should "go back to Germany."

Wenger was booed as he emerged, with one man shouting obscenities at the manager.

Fans also turned on the players during the game, chanting: "You're not fit to wear the shirt" as they offered little resistance against Palace.

Arsenal are sixth in the Premier League and in increasing danger of missing out on Champions League qualification for the first time under Wenger.

The manager has faced increasing calls to step down when his contract expires this summer.

However, he said after the game it would be "inconvenient" to discuss his future straight after a disappointing loss.
