The FA Cup

Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Calum Chambers' performance against Watford

Emirates Inside

Arsenal and Watford went head-to-head this weekend.

Arsenal crashed out of the FA Cup this weekend when they lost 2-1 at home to Watford at the quarter-final stage.

The Gunners knew this was their only realistic shot at silverware this season but they were well below par against an impressive Hornets side.

The visitors took the lead through Odion Ighalo shortly after half-time and Adlene Guedioura doubled Watford’s advantage with 27 minutes of normal-time remaining.

Substitute Danny Welbeck gave Arsenal hope when he scored in the 88th minute but despite having chances to equalise Watford ultimately held firm, ensuring it will be them who travel to Wembley for the semi-finals while the Gunners wonder what went wrong.

Watford fully deserved their win with a number of Arsenal players performing well below their best and their much maligned back-line coming in for more criticism.

Calum Chambers featured at right-back and the former Southampton player did not endear himself to the fans, while Per Mertesacker and Gabriel also put in very poor showings.

After the match we took to Twitter to see what Arsenal fans thought of Chambers’ latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
