Darren Bent took to Twitter today as Arsenal were battered 5-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
The Gunners fan pleaded for Antonio Conte to be handed the reigns.

Arsenal were so poor against City this afternoon. The defending was as shambolic as it was comical at times.
Mikel Arteta is under real pressure now.
The Spaniard has spent a lot of money at Arsenal this summer, but the Gunners look even worse than they did last season.
Darren Bent wants Conte to be appointed as Arsenal manager
There are calls for change from some sections of the Emirates faithful.
Many want Conte to take over from Arteta. Bent is clearly one of those.
Bent grew up as an Arsenal fan and was a ball-boy at Highbury. So he clearly is a very passionate Gunner.
These are sad, sad times for the Arsenal fans. What on earth has happened to this once great football club?
They are in sharp decline. And perhaps a change of manager is the only way to arrest this alarming slide.
Whether Conte would be interested in taking over at the Emirates is another matter entirely.
