Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Szczesny performance in 6-0 Chelsea thrashing

A selection of Arsenal fans were not pleased with the topsy-turvy performance of Wojciech Szczesny in the Arsenal goal yesterday.

Arsenal have done it again - been absolutely pulverised by a title rival.

Following crushing defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City already this season they suffered the same fate against Chelsea yesterday.

5-1, 6-3 and 6-0 - four goals scored and 17 conceded against the other teams in the top four of the Premier League.

Bear in mind Arsenal have conceded just 34 goals in the Premier League all season and that statistic becomes even more harrowing. Over 50% of their goals conceded in the league this season has come in three games.

There was of course many a talking point from yesterday’s game.

The red card for Kieran Gibbs that was meant for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being one - but when it comes to players on the pitch nobody had a more talkative display than goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Last week he was gloating - taking selfies at White Hart Lane after Arsenal rode their luck to a 1-0 win.

A week later he was on the end of another hammering - and some of the fans were quite disappointed with his performance.

Szczesny has had a good season.

After his poor campaign last year, and his terrible start to the new season against Aston Villa, he has turned performances on their head.

But yesterday was not one of his best days.

He did make the odd decent save here and there. One from David Luiz really stands out for example.

But he should have done a lot better for Oscar’s second goal - that is obvious.But even a couple of the other goals were stoppable.

The Andre Schurrle strike should have been stopped, he adopted a poor position for Mohamed Salah’s cool finish and, in my hyper critical opinion, I feel he should have anticipated the Samuel Eto’o opener better - but like I said, that last one is me being particulary critical.

However it surely raises questions over Szczesny once again.

At Arsenal he is a comfortable number one choice.

Lukasz Fabianski is going, Emiliano Viviano won’t be sticking around while Damian Martinez and Deyan Aliev are not going to make him lose any sleep at night.

Perhaps a big name stopper - someone with experience like Pepe Reina - this summer could help rather than hinder this young stopper - who still has plenty to learn.

Here is some of your reaction to his performance…
