Arsenal Fans Message Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain To Save Them From Spurs Champions League Win
Arsenal fans are so desperate to see their rivals Spurs fail in the Champions League final next month that they've already started messaging former Arsenal player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to help them out.
The only thing that gets close to the nightmare of your team failing is seeing your rivals succeed, even worse when they've historically been the underachievers of the rivalry and are now punching above their historic weight and overtaking you.
That's the reality for Arsenal right now with Spurs likely to beat them to a Champions League spot in the Premier League and now being in the final of Europe's top competition after Wednesday night's incredible comeback against Ajax.
Sure the Gunners could themselves book a place in the Europa League final on Thursday night, when they face Valencia, but even winning that competition wouldn't soften the blow of their north London rivals beating liverpool in the Champions League final.
With that reality possibly looming fans from the Emirates Stadium have taken to social media to ask former Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, now playing for Liverpool, to make sure it doesn't happen:
Bro please. Arsenal need you do this. Whatever it takes- Arseniall (@arse_niall) May 9, 2019
@Alex_OxChambo hi Ox, how fit are you? Like... I need you to play in the CL final, even if for a few minutes. And then score. Do it for your old Arsenal fans :wink::heart::kissing_heart:- Sarah Peters (@SarahP_official) May 9, 2019

It doesn't seem like the smartest idea to hope that the England midfielder will be the saviour for their team considering that the Ox has only played 17 minutes of football this season.
The 25 year old, who left Arsenal in August 2017 for £35 million, picked up a serious knee injury in last season's Champions League semi final against Roma.
He didn't play for over a year before recently coming on as a substitute in the Premier League game against Huddersfield last month.
Arsenal fans might have to get used to Spurs being champions of Europe, prepare for the worst guys.
