Arsenal fans slate ‘atrocious’ defending as Phil Foden waltzes through Newcastle

Arsenal fans have slammed Newcastle United's defending on Saturday lunchtime as Phil Foden danced through the Magpies' defence to open the scoring.

The Gunners and Manchester City are currently in a nip-and-tuck title race – with City having the chance to go within two points of the league leaders. And Arsenal fans weren't happy with Newcastle as Pep Guardiola's side took the lead.

Foden picked the ball up on the right-wing, before he cut inside, taking three Newcastle players out of the game and then glided by two. The youngster's shot took a big deflection on its way in, but it didn't stop Arsenal fans from venting on social media.

"That's disgraceful defending. Foden waltz's past 4 defenders & gets a lucky deflection," a second added. While a third added: "Brilliant goal by Foden but that defending was atrocious, man!"

"Rubbish defending from Newcastle gave Foden sooo much space," another added. And a fifth tweeted: "Horrible defending. Good goal for Foden though!"

Arsenal were back to their brilliant best in the week, and Mikel Arteta's side dispatched relegation-threatened Everton with ease – smashing four past the Toffees.

The Gunners are also in action on Saturday afternoon, as they welcome Bournemouth to the Emirates Stadium.
