Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger didn’t show up to his post match press conference after being handed a 6-0 beating by Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.
No Arsenal players have tweeted since the game and the official Arsenal Twitter account has been silent too.
On Sunday it was announced Arsene Wenger had cancelled his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League clash with Swansea.
With all the silence, Twitter began to speculate and rumours grew of Wenger’s impending retirement.
Here are some of the best tweets on the lockdown at Arsenal.
Arsenal cancel Monday press conference and their players blocked from talking to the media. Will Wenger sign this new contract now? #AFC

Wenger not doing press conference tomorrow ahead of Swansea. Instead, Arsenal will make quotes available. Not like him. Usually fronts up.

The fact that Wenger's press conference is cancelled, @Arsenal haven't tweeted all day and neither have any players suggests all is not rosy

Hearing rumours that there will be a press conference this afternoon. Lots of people think Wenger could announce his retirement.

This is all nonsense the Wenger retiring thing. Press conference on a Sunday evening? Doesn't make sense.

No interviews, tweets, press conferences, nothing at Arsenal. And rumours that Wenger's announcing retirement. #Crisis
