Arsenal Fans Were Queueing Up To Leave The Emirates At Half-Time Against Manchester City
It is believed that 15,000 Arsenal fans left the Emirates stadium when the club were 3-0 down to Manchester City at half-time.
Manchester City dominated for large spells of the first period on Sunday as a masterclass from Kevin de Bruyne, and a goal from Raheem Sterling, helped Pep Guardiola's to a healthy lead at the break.
It was all too much for some Arsenal supporters, who decided against watching the second half as Freddie Ljungberg's side continued to struggle in possession.
In fact, Twitter user @garythegooner56 filmed fans queueing to leave the stadium through the turnstiles.

Sunday's Premier League clash was an evening to forget for the home support.
It took just 89 seconds for Kevin de Bruyne to make his mark on the game when he smashed one into the top corner.
The Belgian then turned provider in the 15th minute when he set up Raheem Sterling to make it 2-0, before the former Chelsea playmaker made it 3-0 with another trademark strike.
Following the result, Arsenal's interim manager Freddie Ljungberg called for the club to make a decision sooner rather than later about the vacant full-time manager's post.
"I've said to them [the club] they need to make a decision." he said. "We are here to help and the staff are trying to chip in but a decision has to be made so we can have the same resources as other clubs.
"Per is an academy manager and he is doing two jobs in one go. It needs to be cleared up, to make a decision, so everybody knows. That's something I've said. But then it's totally up to the club.
"I'm very honoured and I try to do things as good as I can but it would be good to make a decision - regardless of what it is."
