‘He should be sold in the morning for that’ – Twitter slams Arsenal player after Burnley moment
Despite putting in a decent shift during the FA Cup clash with Burnley on Saturday, some Gooners refused to forgive Kieran Gibbs for one unintentional moment.
An Alexis Sanchez strike on his first start since November secured a 2-1 win for the Gunners who have progressed to the fifth round of the competition yet again.
But Saturday’s victory did not come without a nervy moment or two as the visitors managed to equalize only ten minutes after Arsene Wenger’s men had taken the lead.
That goal from Sam Vokes came after Burnley unsettled the Gunners’ defense with a move which saw Kieran Gibbs somehow tackle Francis Coquelin (by mistake) in the build-up.
With the vital Frenchman fresh from an injury lay-off, there were mixed reactions from fans on social media.
To be fair Kieran Gibbs actually slipped. Looked like a bad tackle though.

Kieran Gibbs is so annoyed with Arsenal fans overrating Coquelin he's tried to re-injure the Frenchman. That's commitment.

Kieran Gibbs should be sold in the morning for tackling his own player, fucking piss poor…! We are the worse decision makers on the planet

So despite having a solid game, Gibbs slipping into Coquelin means that he's shit and needs to be sold? Cool.

I wonder how much Flamini paid Gibbs to try to injure Coquelin.

Kieran Gibbs should be shown the video of him taking out Coquelin on a loop for hours, with Bould slapping him and shouting 'Stupid boy!'
