A half-empty Emirates Stadium saw Arsenal claim three points for the first time in four games on Sunday.

The Gunners saw off a spirited Watford 3-0 at home, but their are growing concerns over the number of empty seats which have overshadowed the victory.

Thousands of Gooners stayed away from the game on Mother’s Day – just as they did 10 days ago when Arsenal were dispatched 3-0 at home by Manchester City.

It was suspected that the poor attendance against City was due to the freezing temperatures and snow across the UK. However, the apathy that has clearly set in at Arsenal and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners boss blamed the no-show on a run of four defeats in just over a week.

Speaking after the Watford win Wenger said: “Yes, of course I worry because I want our fans to be behind the team and happy.”

“But after what happened in that week, it’s a bit understanding – you know – we are in a job, we have to get the fans on our side and do absolutely everything to do it, to achieve it; that’s what you want to do after that.”

Thoughts, Gooners? Let us know in the comments…
