Arsenal Humiliated By Crystal Palace
Arsenal snapped a Premier League win drought over the weekend as they beat West Ham 3-0, but Arsene Wenger's charges endured more league misery at Crystal Palace, tonight.
Big Sam's side are amidst a relegation dog fight but are slowly clawing themselves out of danger following the last few results.
Palace inflicted Chelsea with a rare home defeat, and their bid to survive the drop was boosted after picking up all-three points against London rivals, Arsenal.
Boy-hood Spurs fan Andros Townsend opened the scoring before Yohan Cabaye doubled their lead with a tidy finish.
Townsend then won a penalty which was converted by Luka Milivojevic.
Following the victory, Palace now have some daylight between 18th placed-Swansea City, while Arsenal fail to overtake Manchester United, and lose ground on Manchester City in pursuit of Champions League.
Needless to say, social media had a field day.
We've managed to make Crystal fucking Palace look like a peak Brazil. Embarrassing.- 1886 (@1886_blog) April 10, 2017

Been technically, tactically & physically outdone today. We're not playing Real Madrid, we're playing Crystal Palace. Time for change #AFC- Patrick Timmons (@PatrickTimmons1) April 10, 2017

Not to mention Shkodran Mustafi who has subject to a shitload of stick on Twitter. Here are some of the reactions:

Mustafi is not worth 5 million and Bellerin has gone backwards.
Mustafi's positioning is the worst. No discipline. If he was a club bouncer you'd find him inside the rave.- Tormund Giantsbane (@tosin_GoodTimes) April 10, 2017
Mustafi is actually garbage at least Vermaelen scored goals to cover up his shitness- Kieran_B91 (@Kieran_B91) April 10, 2017
