A number of Arsenal fans took to social media to express how they felt about the performance of one of the full-backs who featured for the club on Sunday against Watford.
Following the loss at Anfield, Unai Emery faced his first test of the new season as he looked to guide his side back to winning ways a week later against Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby.
After coming back from two goals down to secure a draw against bitter rivals Spurs ar the Emirates stadium, the Gunners suffered that same comeback fate at the hands of Watford after the international break.
One of the players who featured in Arsenal’s clash with the Hornets was Ainsley Maitland-Niles, a player still striggling to maintain a consistent run of performances after the injury to Hector Bellerin in January gifted him with a chance to shine.
After the frustrating result at Watford, several fans bashed Maitland-Niles for his subpar display.
Maitland niles has a disgusting attitude and terrible demeanour. ANOTHER bad performance by him. Fast track Bellerin and get maitland niles to Hull City. Absolutely useless again. Xhaka is Xhaka. Makes everything look so difficult.

Maitland Niles more worried about looking cool on the pitch than playing well. To the bench you go. #WATARS

Maitland Niles strikes me as the sort of player to be brain dead at times and make decisions solely off the tip of his brain!

Obvious that Maitland Niles is done playing at RB.. the man hates it.
BELLERIN SAVE US PLEASE.
