Arsenal Fans Direct Their Fury At Sky Sports' Coverage Of Marcos Alonso Goal

Arsenal Fans Direct Their Fury At Sky Sports' Coverage Of Marcos Alonso Goal

Premier League fans are in the less-than-ideal position of relying on Arsenal to make the Premier League title race interesting for the last few months of the season, and unfortunately, it's not going very well.

Chelsea lead 1-0 thanks to a Marcos Alonso header, for which he went through Hector Bellerin for a shortcut. In doing so, he lashed Bellerin in the face with his elbow. Bellerin took a nasty fall onto his back, and was replaced by Gabriel immediately.

Diego Costa's header came back off the crossbar, and with Bellerin caught under the ball, Alonso arrived into the penalty area to head in.

Gary Neville said he had a bit of sympathy for Bellerin for "a little bit of a crack in the face", but there was no doubt among Sky's assembled football brains that the goal should have stood. Graeme Souness said as much at half-time. Not even Thierry Henry disagreed!

The lack of debate caused angst among Arsenal fans.

When Arsene Wenger was going whole seasons unbeaten he was Le Proffeseur, now he's more like Basil Fawlty.

Reports that Liam Brady upped and left the stadium in disgust are, as of yet, unconfirmed.
