Most Arsenal fans took to social media on Wednesday to express their thoughts on the man who featured at right-back for the Gunners against Bournemouth in the Premier League.
With injuries becoming more and more of an issue even after the departure of Arsene Wenger last year, the Gunners have been forced to reshuffle their back line on numerous occasions this season.
That has seen Arsenal struggle to keep anything close to a decent defensive record with the team possessing one of the worst tallies of goals conceded out of all of the teams in the top six of the league.
As a result, Unai Emery decided to make one surprise call on Wednesday as he brought in forgotten star Carl Jenkinson.
The defender was making his first ever start in an Arsenal shirt since all the way back in 2016.
Jenkinson is not a player who has always received praises from the Arsenal faithful but after his performance on Wednesday, most of the fans were showing their appreciation…
Jenkinson can actually be a premier league quality right back. He’s arsneal theough and through and we should give him a new contract. He actually cares for the club and you can see it in the way he acts off and on the pitch.

Also very evident that Jenkinson deserves his time on the pitch over Lich (during Bellerin’s long term injury of course)

Jenkinson should be ahead of AMN at the RB/RWB.

Mesut Ozil has scored in Carl Jenkinson's last three PL starts at the Emirates. Proof Jenkinson is the key to getting the best out of Ozil.

The usual suspects will get all the plaudits but Jenkinson deserves so much more credit than he gets. Great game tonight. The guy is an Arsenal boy living the dream. #Jenko ????????????
