London - Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain risked angering Arsene Wenger after the Arsenal
midfielder 'liked' a tweet calling for the Gunners boss to be sacked
following Saturday's 3-1 defeat against Chelsea.
Wenger's side saw their title challenge suffer a huge setback as they
were blown away by Premier League leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The third placed Gunners now trail Chelsea by 12 points and
Oxlade-Chamberlain added to the tension around his team when he appeared
to show support for a Twitter post demanding Wenger's dismissal.
Less than an hour after the full-time whistle, Oxlade Chamberlain,
who was used by Wenger in an out of position central midfield role
against Chelsea, liked a Twitter post from popular Arsenal YouTube
channel, Arsenal Fan TV, with a video entitled "Wenger Needs to Go!"
Oxlade-Chamberlain apparently didn't understand what he was adding
his backing to and the England international quickly removed his like of
the tweet, but not before it had been spotted by a wider internet
At a time when Wenger, currently serving a touchline ban, is sure to
come under fire from frustrated Arsenal fans, Oxlade-Chamberlain tried
to limit the damage when he returned to social media later in the day.
"I didn't mean to like that post earlier obviously. Didn't even realise I had!" he wrote.
