Arsenal lost 0-3 to Manchester City for the second time in a week on Thursday night, further demoralising the fanbase and strengthening manager Arsène Wenger’s detractors.
The Premier League clash at the Emirates, rescheduled after the two sides faced each other in the League Cup final on Sunday, was over by half-time with the visitors only needing 33 minutes to score thrice.
Arsenal failed to muster a response and their misery was compounded when new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed a penalty shortly after the break.
These were the best of the downbeat Arsenal jokes and tweets after another 0-3 defeat to Manchester City:
Have Arsenal tried turning the game off and then on again?

There are two things you can see from space:
1. The Great Wall of China.
2. The gap in Arsenal's defence.#ARSMCI

Arsene Wenger turns to his bench. Sees Alex Iwobi. Turns back round again.

Pep shook his head when Arsenal lost possession – it pains even the winning manager.

Ederson has now saved more penalties at the Emirates (1) than Cech has in his Arsenal career.

This time last year, Lacazette and Aubameyang were two of the best strikers in world football.
Now they play for Arsenal.

So my wife walks in whilst I’m watching this match, glances at the scoreline and asks: “Are these highlights of the last game?”

Arsenal could sign Usain Bolt and 3 months later he’d be losing a foot race to Wes Morgan

Wenger staying in the changing room to avoid the interview .. the best tactics he's used in months
— Pauly AFC (@PIreland33) March 1, 2018
Wenger is still in the dressing room because he’s still reeling off all the clubs that have offered him a job in the last 21 years.
