Arsenal fans thought tonight was going to be a formality, but they reckoned without a horrendous display from centre-back Calum Chambers in the first half.

With a 3-0 lead against the minnows Ostersunds, Wenger named a second-string team but they went two goals down in the first 25 minutes – the first an own goal from Chambers.

That cut the aggregate score to 3-2 and threatened a huge shock in a cup that Arsenal probably need to win to qualify for the Champions League.

In fact Robbie Savage on commentary on BT Sport said it would be the biggest European shock that he’d ever seen.

Arsenal fought back into the game by half-time but Jack Wilshere missed a big chance just before half-time and meant the fans had a nervy 15 minutes to contemplate a second-half that no-one would have predicted.

Most of the half-time talk will be about the display of Chambers at the back…

Here are the best reactions to Arsenal fans after a terrible first half from the 23-year-old at the Emirates:
