Arsenal away fans refused to abandon Arsene Wenger during their Capital One Cup humiliation at Bradford City.

The Arsenal manager picked almost a full-strength side to enhance the club's prospects of a first trophy for seven years but they departed the competition after a penalty shootout.

The defeat will increase the pressure on Wenger as he continues to insist that Arsenal's financial prudence will eventually reap dividends at Emirates Stadium. Arsenal's impressive travelling support sang Wenger's name in response to taunts of "You're getting sacked in the morning" from the Bradford fans following Thompson's volley.
