Arsenal: Fans defend Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after last-gasp miss - Arsenal

Arsenal fans have been launching a staunch defence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the centre-forward missed a last-gasp chance to send the Gunners through to the last-16 of the Europa League.

With the side having gone 2-1 down in the 119th minute of the game, Aubameyang saw the ball roll into his path after an attempted clearance from an Olympiakos player deflected off a teammate.

Head coach Mikel Arteta claimed that it was his job to lift the players with the outfit still in the FA Cup and just seven points off the top four in the Premier League (via football.london). Fans were very defensive over their star man as they took to Twitter to react to his miss. Here are a selection of tweets:
