Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has called on the supporters to back the club following their 4-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday.

The Gunners were truly outclassed by the Reds during the game as they failed to find a shot on target for the entire 90 minutes.

Following the thumping, Arsene Wenger has urged the fans to stick with the team after what he called was an absolutely disastrous performance at Anfield, he told Sky Sports: "If some people feel as if I am the problem, then I am sorry that I am the problem. But we want our fans to be with us even in a losing performance like that. The only thing we can do is come back and give them a better performance. We were not at the right level from the first minute - physically, technically and mentally - and we were punished. Today our performance was not acceptable. It is true today we were an easy opponent for Liverpool."

The Gunners had come off a grueling 1-0 defeat at the hands of Stoke City last weekend, and many pundits expected them to put in a performance against the Reds before the international break. However, surprisingly enough, the whole team other than Petr Cech failed to show up for the clash as they produced one of their worst performances in recent times.

Arsenal never looked comfortable with the ball during the course of the game, and the lacklustre showing has led to calls for Wenger's dismissal just three games into the season. The defeat keeps the Gunners just above the relegation zone, and this won't be a nice sight for the club's faithful, who had hoped for progress following Wenger's two-year extension earlier this summer.

The Gunners have brought in just two players in Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette in the summer transfer window, and they could potentially move in for another recruit before the transfer deadline.
