Fans react to Sokratis’ performance vs Qarabag
Arsenal fans have taken to social media to express their thoughts on the performance of new signing Sokratis Papastathopoulos in the 3-0 win over Qarabag in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The Gunners have been improving their defensive record in recent weeks after beginning the campaign in such poor form at the back which saw them concede five goals in two games against Manchester City and Chelsea.
New signing Sokratis Papastathopoulos has kept a place in the starting eleven on a consistent basis for Unai Emery, who has been attempting to repair much of the problems in the team which he inherited from Arsene Wenger.
On Thursday night, the Gunners traveled to Qarabag in the second game of their Europa League campaign and the man who opened the scoring in the 3-0 win was Sokratis.
The former Borussia Dortmund star appears to be settling in well at Arsenal so far and that has seen him receive some plaudits from the fans on social media…
Sokratis inmense Again. Solid commanding and his double tackle at 3-0 up was a highlight. Also led the call to salute away fans at end. On the way to cult status

Just a quick word on Sokratis: he’s seriously exceeded my expectations since joining. Individually he’s looked solid, even in a system that’s adjusting to new ideas. He’s very vocal and is improving on the ball with every passing every game. Nice for him to get a goal today.
