Arsenal fan calls every other Premier League top six team 'bottlers' in viral Twitter thread
| Last updated
An Arsenal fan has taken to Twitter to create a viral thread on where the other top six clubs in the Premier League have struggled following calls that the Gunners were 'bottlers' following their likely failure to win the league title.
Having lost 4-1 to title rivals Manchester City at the Etihad on Wednesday evening, Mikel Arteta's side look as though they will have to settle for a runners-up spot despite having spent the majority of the season sat at the summit.
Draws against Liverpool, West Ham and Southampton as well as the defeat to City have seen the north London outfit drop nine points since returning from the international break which has subsequently put the Premier League title in Pep Guardiola's side's hands.
Although Arsenal are still top of the league, they have a two point lead over City who boast two games in hand. It certainly looks as though the Blues will end the season lifting their third consecutive Premier League title.
However, there are still positives for the Gunners with the north London side securing Champions League football for the first time since 2017. Additionally, numerous other traditional top six sides have struggled this term, highlighted by Twitter user @Shamsdale.
In a viral thread, the Arsenal supporter called out supporters of rival clubs who jeered the Gunners' collapse at the Etihad and highlighted their team's struggles.

For Manchester United, Shamsdale went on to note their recruitment issues, highlighting the spending of £100 million on Antony and signing Wout Weghorst on loan in January. Similarly to United, Chelsea's own recruitment issues were also called out following the Blues' first transfer windows under the ownership of Todd Boehly.
As for Liverpool, the Arsenal fan went in on the Red's struggles to find consistency with Jurgen Klopp's side in a race against time to secure Champions League qualification for next season.
Lastly, for the Gunners' north London rivals, Tottenham's managerial casualties were the focal point of his argument, highlighting how ex-boss Antonio Conte ridiculed the culture of the football club in his infamous post-match press conference after a 3-3 draw with Southampton.
Arteta's men have five Premier League matches remaining and will be keen to ensure that, if they can't win the title, they finish second and avoid a complete collapse having been so impressive for the vast majority of the campaign.
