Arsenal Fans Seem To Have Forgotten Their Team Was Playing Tonight

Arsenal Fans Seem To Have Forgotten Their Team Was Playing Tonight

There is a fair sense of antipathy toward the final round of Europa League group stage matches tonight.

With Sam Allardyce not travelling to Cyprus to see a young Everton side pick up their first win of the group, Arsenal fans have similarly displayed their indifference toward match-day 6 - albeit for different reasons.

Having already qualified top of their group before the visit of BATE Borisov this evening, the Emirates stadium was looking particularly desolate.

Being almost able to count the number of spectators on two hands, Ian Darke was not ruling out the possibility that it could be the lowest attendance in the stadium's 11 year history

Something of a dead-rubber then, there seemed to be far more fans watching from home.

Those Arsenal fans who did stay away from the Emirates missed something of a rare event however - Mathieu Debuchy opening the scoring with a thunderbolt of an effort.
