ARSENAL fans sarcastically celebrated Manchester City’s fourth goal at Etihad Stadium this afternoon.
The Gunners’ miserable start to the season continued, as they were battered 5-0 by the champions away from home.

And some appear to be at breaking point.
The North Londoners went into the game on zero points and yet to score a goal, having suffered 2-0 losses to Brentford and Chelsea.
And things swiftly got worse at Eastlands, with Pep Guardiola’s City racing into a 2-0 lead.
Granit Xhaka’s 35th minute red card for a reckless, two-footed lunge on Joao Cancelo gave Arsenal an even more uphill battle, and Gabriel Jesus made it 3-0 just before the interval.
Midfielder Rodri continued the goal-fest just eight minutes into the second 45, with some embarrassing footage coming to light for the Gunners.
Humiliated and fed up, some of the travelling supporters were seen cheering and celebrating with their arms aloft after City’s fourth.
Some feel that fans were supportive of anything that could push Arteta closer to the sack.
While others reckon that the disappointed Gunners fans just wanted to try and remember what it’s like to have a Premier League goal to celebrate.
Regardless, under-fire Arteta thanked the travelling fans for their backing after the match.
The Spaniard, 39, said: “When you lose games it’s possible. We had 3,000 fans today and the way they reacted to the team and the support they gave was unconditional. I am really proud of that.
“I am sorry we could not give them what they wanted and we will try to fix that. It’s been really tough the last three weeks with everything that happened.”
