Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Gunners fans were “absolutely sensational” during their 2-2 draw with Manchester City, despite further fan protests at Emirates Stadium.
Wenger, who is under pressure following one win in six matches and a slide down the Premier League table, has faced calls to resign from some fans.
“I must say, despite all that has happened on the fans front, our fans were fantastic today,” said the Frenchman, whose side twice hit back to earn a draw against City.
“In very difficult moments our fans, at 1-0 down and 2-1 down, could have turned against us but I think they were absolutely sensational to get us through those difficult moments.”
Goals from Theo Walcott and Shkodran Mustafi cancelled out efforts from Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero in a performance Wenger believed “built confidence to help us to come back to our natural fluency.”
