Arsenal fans urging club to launch Newcastle raid after latest Premier League defeat

More poor defending from Arsenal allowed Rafael Benitez’s side back into the game and fans are now eager to see someone more solid come in to take charge of the side.

In fact, some Gooners are so desperate they’re actually calling for Benitez to be that man to come in at the Emirates Stadium this summer, despite previous links with a number of more high-profile names.

Arsenal fans will take anything, however, and this is what many were calling for on Twitter after the Spaniard got the better of Wenger this weekend:
