However, commentators like Ferdinand, a legend of Manchester United, found it difficult to understand that Arsenal fans were leaving the stadium well before the final whistle.

With a well-earned victory, Villa moved three points clear of fifth-place Tottenham, thanks to goals from Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins on minutes 84 and 87.

And ex-England defender Ferdy shared a picture of fast-emptying seats behind the goal as he wrote: “Early train Arsenal fans??? Ffs.”


Former long-serving BT Sport broadcaster Kelly posted an even sparser image from the touchline stands and added: “With 8 mins still to go..?”

One viewer labelled the home crowd “an embarrassing set of fans”.

Another observer responded: “The title race is not over, the players need to feel their support more than ever.”

Ferdinand’s displeasure over the disappearing Emirates audience won plenty of backing on social media.

“Rio is cooking,” said one football enthusiast.

And another added: “Stunning support when your team really needs it. 75% of fans had left once 2 nil down.”

Inevitably, of course rival supporters joined the taunts from the wider football audience.

“Yep, fire drill started at 1 nil down,” mocked one, while a few dubbed the early-leavers “plastic” fans.

One supporter tried to hit back by posting: “95th minute, 2-0 down with no chance to win, why wait around?”

But he came under instant fire from replies like: “That’s with 2 and half minutes left, it was empty with 7 and half to go.”
