At the start of the 2018-19 season if anyone was asked about the ambitions of Arsenal then surely they would have said that the Gunners need to qualify for the Champions League next campaign.

Forget the fans, even the players wanted to get back into the top tier of English football and then take it on from there.

But as we enter the fourth month of the season, things are looking completely different for the London outfit.

Unai Emery has completely transformed the club who not sit fourth on the league table – just two points behind the league leaders.

And suddenly many people are voting for Arsenal as the dark horses to win the trophy at the end of May.

Having said all that, there are still some fans who are not happy with a couple of players in the team and have been firing shots at them on social media.

One such player is Hector Bellerin who was the subject of some harsh criticism after he scored an own-goal against Leicester City on Monday – a game that Arsenal ended up winning 3-1.

But former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has come out to defend the full-back and he has a very short but perfect message for the all the haters

Ian Wright wrote on Twitter: “I put this out yesterday and today I’m reading Arsenal fans telling me about his defending! One word, f*** off.”

Ian Wright told the Times: “Some of it can get very abusive.

“Most of the abuse is online, but you hear it in the stadium too.

“People have called me ‘lesbian’ for growing my hair. There are other kinds of homophobic insults.

“I have learnt to grow a thick skin but it can affect you. Every now and again, you get a bit of self-doubt.”
