Arsenal fans were not impressed when the club's technical director Edu was seen shaking his head in the stands during the Gunners' 1-1 draw with Southampton at the Emirates on Wednesday.
Theo Walcott gave the high-flying Saints the lead in the first-half, with a calm finish against his former club.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then brought Arsenal level with a much-needed strike that ended a poor run of 797 Premier League minutes without a goal from open play.
With Arsenal searching for a winner and hoping to end a run of five league games without a win, Gabriel Magalhaes got sent off after receiving two yellow cards in the space of four minutes.
Arsenal did end up escaping with a point but when the Gunners were 1-0 down in the first-half, broadcasters Amazon Prime caught Edu in the stands shaking his head in disbelief.
That did not go down well with fans, who took to Twitter to voice their displeasure, with one saying: "Can shake his head all he wants – he’s part of the reason we are in this state right now".
Mikel Arteta's problem with Arsenal 'identity' laid bare in straight-talking analysis
"As if he isn't responsible for any of that s***e", wrote a second.
"Sack him immediately please", added a third.
"Because he knows he’s done a terrible job bringing his friends to manage this club", another disgruntled supporter wrote.
"Dunno what he’s mad about, got us Willian, Cedric & Mari on long term deals".
Speaking after the game, Arteta said it was important to come away with a draw having gone down to ten men.
"Considering the fact that we played 35 mins with ten men we have to take the point because we showed some resilience and character to hang in there for so long against a really dangerous team", he told his post-match press conference.
"But at the same time really disappointed because we came back after conceding the goal.
"We showed how much we want it, we created some situations and after half time we corrected a few things, we came back really strong in the game scored a good goal. But when we have the best moment again we shoot ourselves in the foot."
