Arsenal fans think ‘bottlejobs’ handing Man City title is ‘all our own fault’

Arsenal fans are ready to hand the Premier League title to Manchester City after watching their 'bottlejobs' throw away a two-goal lead against West Ham.

Mikel Arteta's men were cruising after 10 minutes at the London Stadium thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard but strikes from Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen earned the hosts a point.

Those goals also handed Pep Guardiola a huge boost with this side now only four points behind Arsenal with a game in hand – and an Etihad tie still to come.

One fuming fan wrote: "My disappointment cannot be expressed in words. For the second game in a row we throw a 2-0 lead away. And it's ALL OUR FAULT."

A second posted: "We have bottled the league. Our own fault." A third agreed: "We really need to stop bottling it! Most of our points dropped have been our own fault."

A fourth said: "Countless times we have lost games we should've won or be winning comfortably. Absolute bottlejobs."

A fifth posted: "Bunch of bottlejobs ffs done watching football." As a sixth concluded: "We are the biggest bottlejobs in the league ffs."

Following the 2-2 draw, Arteta was coy over the title race as he again insisted that it was out of Arsenal's control, despite still having a four point lead.

He said: "It's the same, I don't know how many notches there were a few months ago. We can't control it."

Arteta said of the result in general: "Very disappointing. The way we started was superb again, we were in total control, then we lost purpose.

"We gave them hope, conceded a terrible penalty, then credit to them. We got on the roller coaster where everything is going, corners and throw ins, and we never got away from that.

"The purpose we needed for third and fourth goal, I didn't see it."
