Hector Bellerin applauds Arsenal fans after loss... immediately regrets his decision

Palace's first home win over Arsenal since 1979 left their London rivals in sixth place, seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.

And video footage shows fan fury overspill to the players with a number of obscenities not only aimed towards Wenger, but also Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi.

"I understand our fans are disappointed and we all are deeply tonight".

Forget top four, it shouldn't have anything to do with it for Arsenal - go for trophies, not top four.

The 67-year-old added: "Yes he was up for it, he's a handful for everybody when he's like that." .

This isn't Arsenal in this moment in time.

"It's a hard defeat but on top of that it has consequences on our chances to be in the top four". Including embarrassing back to back 5-1 defeats to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and last nights 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in the Premier League surely enough conformation that the club is in a state of complete anarchy.

If Arsene Wenger had any sense of honour he would hand in his resignation this morning.

"For me it's incredible", said the Serb after Monday's 3-0 win over Arsenal.

"The biggest thing was letting the fans down tonight", Walcott told Sky Sports.

"The biggest problem overall with Arsenal is that Arsene Wenger seems to make that decision on his future", Sutton said on BBC Radio Five Live.

Arsenal's furious fans turned on Arsene Wenger and his players as they were humiliated at Crystal Palace on Monday night.

The loss ruined whatever momentum Arsenal had built up with a 2-2 draw against Manchester City and 3-0 win over West Ham last Wednesday. It's not good when you hear your captain (stand in captain) Theo Walcott say "Palace wanted it more. It was an uphill battle".

But, asked if the uncertainty about his future is affecting the players, he said: "No, I don't think so. But judging from that performance tonight, it looks like [we have]".

"It was more painful for us to lose this game in the way we lost it."(It is) very hard (to finish in the top four), certainly.
