Arsenal man thrown out of first team into U-21 squad

Serge Gnabry’s loan spell at West Bromwich Albion hit a new low this week after only managing to be selected for the club’s under-21 side instead of the first team.

The 20-year-old, who was sent on a season-long loan to the Hawthorns during the summer, was recently criticized by West Brom manager Tony Pulis for not being “at that level to play games”.

Gnabry has now been left out of the baggies’ first team squad for the last eight league games despite Arsenal’s agreement to loan him out to the relegation battlers for more Premier League experience.

The German youngster made only his second appearance for the West Brom U-21 team in their clash against West Ham on Monday night.

Substituted with 84 minutes played, Gnabry was denied full action in a 2-1 defeat to the Hammers.

After omitting the Arsenal winger from his first team squad, Tony Pulis has made it clear that Gnabry has no part in his plans for this season.

Following injuries to Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck, Tomas Rosicky, Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez, Arsene Wenger is already short of attacking options heading into December’s busy schedule.

But the Gunners will be unable to recall Gnabry from his uneventful loan spell unless West Brom are in agreement.
