Arsenal's Bukayo Saka reacts during the 2-0 Premier League loss to Brentford

Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Brentford on the opening night of Premier League action sparked an angry reaction from Gunners fans at full-time.

Goals from Sergi Canos and Christian Norgaard gave the Bees a shock victory on their Premier League debut.

For many Arsenal supporters, it felt like the natural culmination of a summer that has seen the club struggle in the transfer market, capturing only Ben White for £50 million from Brighton.

Meanwhile, they missed out on other important targets and started the match with youngster Folarin Balogun in attack as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette took ill before kick-off.

The natural reaction of the Gunners was one of frustration and embarrassment.

With Chelsea and Manchester City to come, there is no optimism for the future.

And, of course, opposing supporters took the opportunity to troll Arsenal further.
