Arsenal lost 1-0 to Stoke City on Saturday, and saw their title hopes take a big dent as a result.
It is fair to say Arsenal have seen better Saturdays than their last. While the Gunners lost 1-0 away to Stoke City, Chelsea beat Fulham and Liverpool overcame Southampton to ensure Arsene Wenger's men finished the day third.
The fact that they are only two points ahead of a Manchester City side with two games in hand will also send an additional shiver of discomfort down the backs of many an Arsenal fan.
A Jonathan Walters penalty converted 14 minutes from time gave Mark Hughes' side all three points, and continued Arsenal's less than impressive record against the Potters. It also - at least if you believe the more pessimistic of Gooners - ended their side's tital hopes for another year.
While that may be an over-exaggeration, Arsenal certainly have not been performing to their best recently, and a dip in form that has seen them emphatically beaten by Liverpool and all-but-eliminated from the Champions League suggests Wenger has a lot to do to turn things around both in the domestic league and in Europe.
Arsenal enjoyed 57% possession on Saturday, but they could only manage two shots on target during the entire match. They also forced just four corners in a game that was thin on chances.
Yaya Sanogo had a huge chance to win a point for his side with a late chance but he spurned it and when you consider that Arsenal now face Everton, Bayern Munich and Spurs in quick succession, they need to get their mojo back...and fast.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what the fans thought, and while some understandably stuck by Wenger, others claimed it was time for a change.

On what grounds does Wenger deserve a new contract at Arsenal? Other fans brag about their trophies, we brag about our financial books? #afc— Andile Tsawu (@Andile_Tsawu) March 2, 2014
Arsenal's slim chances pretty much gone. If we don't win the FA cup, time for Wenger to go. His substitutions & selections are nuts #arsenal— Arun Anantharaman (@birdonthewire) March 2, 2014
