But unfortunately for the Gunners faithful, this type of performance is far from becoming an uncommon occurrence in recent years, particularly against the league’s best sides. 6 years ago Arsenal’s 8-2 collapse at Old Trafford to Manchester United was seen as a crisis, exaggerated by the fact that it was rare to …
