Several Arsenal fans took to social media to share their dissatisfaction with the performance of one of the players who were brought into the starting eleven by Unai Emery on Wednesday.
Arsenal have been in worrying form in recent weeks and ahead of the trip to Vitoria in the Europa League on Wednesday, Unai Emery and his men were aware of the growing frustration amongst the fans.
As many expected, the Arsenal boss decided to rotate his squad and he even went as far as changing his formation, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles playing again in the wing-back role which he occupied for much of last term.
The Englishman has lost place in the starting eleven to Calum Chambers, and after his display on Wednesday, he might struggle to regain his spot in Emery’s first-choice team.
Some fans took to social media to suggest that Maitland-Niles no longer deserves to be called upon by the manager due to his indifferent performances…
Sorry but Maitland-Niles has shown over the last 12 months he isn't good enough. This should be his last game for Arsenal. #afc

Ainsley Maitland Niles should NEVER play for this football club again, not only as he is utter shit but who thinks its acceptable to wear a stupid necklace to a football match ? Incredible

Can’t seem to figure out what’s so special about Maitland-Niles, he’s bang average

Maitland-Niles has surely gotta realise these are the only minutes he'll get for us and should actually try perform before he gets sold soon

I like Maitland-Niles but fuck me he looks like he doesn't want to be on the pitch

Maitland-niles not knowing that you can't play with necklace on? How silly is that at this level? 🤦🏾♂️
