ARSENAL FANS FIGHT EACH OTHER AFTER BANNER TELLING WENGER TO QUIT WAS UNVEILED DURING WIN OVER BRIGHTON

Time to go: Arsenal fans came to blows after this banner was unfurled during their win over Brighton
                                                 
Arsenal’s FA Cup win over Brighton on Saturday was overshadowed by a fight among the gunners supporters after a fan unfurled a banner calling for Manager Arsene Wenger to leave the club.

Frenchman Olivier Giroud scored twice before substitute Theo Walcott hit a late winner for Arsene Wenger’s side against resilient Brighton.


But the win was overshadowed by a fight among Arsenal supporters after a fan unfurled a banner calling for Wenger to leave the club.

It read: ‘Arsene, thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye.’ 
                                 
The banner sparked fury among Wenger supporters who ordered the supporter to put it away.

No comment: Arsenal declined to comment on the incident between fans
The brawl, which occurred around the 80-minute mark, saw a number of punches thrown.

One supporter, understood to be the man who unravelled the banner, was ejected from the stadium.

Frustrations among supporters were growing after Brighton twice pegged Arsenal back after Giroud put them ahead on two separate occasions.

Arsenal declined to comment on the fans’ incident.

Meanwhile, Thomas Vermaelen will return to the Arsenal starting line-up for Wednesday’s clash against Liverpool after missing the clash against Gus Poyet’s side with an ankle injury.

Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs, Bacary Sagna Santi Cazorla and Walcott are all likely to return to the starting XI for the match against Brendan Rodgers’ side after being rested on Saturday.
