Check out a collection of our favourite Arsenal jokes following defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the Premier League season and Arsène Wenger’s failure to secure any major new signings.

Arsenal are suddenly a club in turmoil and sections of the Gunners support are starting to turn on those in charge; despite the loss of several influential players over the past few seasons, there has been a distinct lack of new arrivals over the summer break.

A 1-3 defeat to last season relegation escapees Aston Villa at the Emirates on Saturday did little to alleviate the pressure on long-term manager Wenger and the growing sense of concern amongst the fans.

But we don’t want to focus on the infighting here, just the fun! So please enjoy the Arsenal jokes below:

Wenger walked straight through the tunnel after today's game because he needed some space. He was later found in Arsenal's trophy room.
