LONDON — Out of contention for the Premier League title and in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification, Arsenal fans let manager Arsene Wenger know just how upset they are on Sunday.
Arsenal had fought back to 1-1 against second-place Manchester United when Wenger's decision to withdraw Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was greeted with derision from the Emirates Stadium crowd.
Andrey Arshavin replaced the young winger and moments later allowed United's Antonio Valencia to set up Danny Welbeck for a winning goal.
Arsenal's players trudged off with jeers ringing in their ears.
Revered for so long by Arsenal fans, the besieged Wenger says "people pay their tickets and are free to express their emotions ... that doesn't mean they are right."
