Arsenal fans hilariously turned on a Nottingham Forest player for apparently ‘giving the title to Manchester City’ after his shambolic display for the Tricky Trees on Sunday, April 28.

The Premier League title race appears to have boiled down to two sides, after Liverpool’s recent dip in form saw them slip five points behind the Gunners with just three games to go.

Comparatively, Mikel Arteta’s side has been consistently brilliant in 2023/24 and unlike last season, they have not suffered a collapse in the title race to bottle the lead.

In fact, with only a handful of games of the season to go, Arsenal are genuine contenders, sitting one point above Manchester City despite having played a game more.

Arsenal cement lead with Tottenham win

The North Londoners’ latest test came in the form of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Arsenal survived a late scare to claim a 3-2 win and in the other game, involving City, would have hoped Pep Guardiola’s side would somehow drop points.

But that was not the case, as the three-time defending champions cruised to a comfortable 2-0 victory thanks to goals by Joško Gvardiol and Erling Haaland.

Gunners fans on social media were critical of Forest striker, Chris Wood, who was guilty of missing some gilt-edged chances that would have potentially changed the complexion of the game.

The New Zealand international, who has netted 12 goals in 27 games this season, had an afternoon to forget as he missed a couple of chances, including an effort from close range.

On social media, fans hilariously claimed Wood’s missed chances could prove to be the difference in the title race.

@AFCRex_ commented:

"How on earth did Chris Wood miss this chance."

@Opresii had some strong thoughts:

"Chris Wood doesn’t want Arsenal to win the league."

@livzledgee added:

"Chris Wood you have blood on your hands."

@TikiTakaConnor was quite dramatic:

"Chris Wood you will pay for your sins."

@D3anoMMV believes something was amiss:

"He bet against us winning the league, theres no other explanation. Hes getting paid 5figures weekly to miss open goals from point-blank range?"

As it stands, the league is now City’s to lose and if they win their game in hand, they will be two points clear at the top.

Declan Rice humbles Arsenal fan

Sports Brief also reported on a curious incident involving Declan Rice and a Tottenham fan.

A Spurs fan tried to wind him up but ended up regretting it as Arsenal scored moments later.

Micky van de Ven thought he had given his team a late equaliser but his goal was chalked off.
