‘He’s championship level, Poor’: Some Arsenal fans don’t think this player is good enough
Several Arsenal fans have suggested that one of the youngsters who were brought into the team by Mikel Arteta is not good enough to be playing at this level.
After last weekend’s draw at Goodison Park where the Gunners recorded a rare clean sheet against Everton, Mikel Arteta had the chance to oversee his first game in charge against Bournemouth on Thursday.
The new Arsenal boss named a starting eleven which mixed youth with experience as Reiss Nelson was handed a start in attack, ahead of expensive summer signing Nicolas Pepe.
The young forward is back at the Emirates stadium after spending last season on loan in Germany.
Despite dominating possession for much of the first half, the Gunners went into the half-time break trailing to Eddie Howe’s side.
And even though a goal from Aubameyang eventually earned the team a point, some fans lashed out at players like Nelson…
Reiss Nelson should’ve stayed on loan, goodness me he’s been awful all season

Reiss Nelson just isn't ready to start in the PL. He's too indecisive with the ball.

I know Reiss Nelson is still young but from what I’ve seen this season I don’t think he has what it takes to play for Arsenal #BOUARS

Nelson has no one to blame if he is shipped off on loan to some club in bulgaria at this rate
