ARSENAL fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration as two Gunners stars were subbed off with an injury in the 2-2 draw at Manchester United.
Rob Holding was stretchered off in the first-half with what appeared to be a serious knee injury after colliding with United forward Marcus Rashford.
The defender was carried off by a mix of Arsenal and United medics, with even the home fans applauding the young Englishman.
Then to add to Unai Emery’s woes, he was forced to replace captain-for-the-night Aaron Ramsey at half-time due to an ankle injury.
Arsenal have a history of players with long-term injuries, with the likes of Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby spending years on the sidelines under Arsene Wenger.
“Injury curse still lurking Arsenal”
And during tonight’s match, several Gunners fans took to Twitter to show their exasperation.
One fan tweeted: “Would be lovely if we can go five minutes without getting an injury jeez come on arsenal.”
While another joked: “Would be a miracle if #arsenal have 11 players on the pitch by match end. So many injuries ffs.”
And several fans had a feeling of deja vu, calling the problem an “injury curse”.
“Injury curse still lurking Arsenal,” the fan tweeeted.
Another recalled the Gunners previous injury problems: “Again with the injuries?? New season, same problem?”
“Arsenal returning to banter era with a Wenger-esque injury list,” one joked.
In a dramatic encounter, both sides picked up a point after there were two goals scored in two minutes in the second-half.
Shokdran Mustafi gave the visitors a short-lived lead after David de Gea could only parry his header into his own net.
But Anthony Martial equalised just four minutes later, after he was laid-off by Ander Herrera, after he was not deemed offside from Marcos Rojo’s free-kick.
But the real action was saved for the second-half, as Alexandre Lacazette bundled in past a wrong-footed de Gea.
However, from the resulting kick-off, Jesse Lingard pounced on some lackadaisical defending from the Gunners, poking home the equaliser.
