Alan Shearer Perfectly Responds To Arsenal Fans Over Match Of The Day 'Bias'

Arsenal fans were pretty pissed on two accounts following Saturday's action. Not only were they angered by their team after losing to Manchester United, but also at 'Match of the Day'.

The BBC program were accused of being bias, with pundit Alan Shearer sending the perfect Tweet to the Arsenal faithfuls.

Before 'MOTD' hit the screens, United beat the Gunners 3-1 on their own patch courtesy of goals from Antonio Valencia and a brace from Jesse Lingard. Alexandre Lacazette netted Arsenal's only goal of the game.

And Arsenal fans weren't happy with the supposed bias on 'MOTD'.

Arsene Wenger's side mustered up 33 shots and enjoyed the lion share of possession, with just the solitary goal to show for their efforts.

Shearer took to Twitter to post the following message: "This is my last word on #ARSMNU. It's pretty simple. 33 shots & 1 goal is a terrible return. Your forwards were not good enough. Conceded 3 goals at home. Your defence & keeper had a very bad day. Still you're saying how great @Arsenal were. Do me a favour man! No bias. Fact."

Arsenal legend Ian Wright also weighed in by criticising his former side. "Why am I seeing so much blame being attached to @BBCMOTD pundits about Arsenal not getting credit for 33 shots and 70 odd % possession! What are we supposed to say about 5 players rushing to close down Pogba, leaving Valencia free ? Just asking . Maybe the refs fault"

Host Gary Lineker also shared his thoughts.
