Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Aaron Ramsey's performance

Aaron Ramsey copped the flak from Arsenal fans amid a limp display against Southampton.

Arsenal failed to find a way past Southampton, denied by an inspired performance from goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

The Gunners could only manage a 0-0 draw, the third league game in a row they have failed to find the net.

They have slipped from top of the league to fourth place, and need to turn their form around quickly to stop them losing further ground.

The loss of midfielder Santi Cazorla to injury has evidently been problematic for the Gunners, and last night they lined up with veteran Mathieu Flamini in midfield, with Francis Coquelin not judged ready.

Perhaps more concerning was the performance of Aaron Ramsey, who has gone from being a game changer two seasons ago, to looking consistently ineffective.

The goals are gone from his game, managing just one shot on target on the night, and that one he fired straight at Forster.

Defensively he managed only one tackle, and one interception, and despite touching the ball more than any Arsenal player at 96 times, did not have a big effect on proceedings.

Returning to his favoured position was a big chance for the Welshman to kick on and re-establish himself, but he needs to do better than this if Arsenal are to be successful.

Here is a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to his performance...
