Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal fans take aim at Unai Emery over Aaron Ramsey treatment following West Ham loss

Arsenal’s supporters have flooded to Twitter this afternoon to demand that Unai Emery find a place in his starting XI for Aaron Ramsey moving forward, following the Welshman’s showing off the bench versus West Ham.

West Ham vs Arsenal

The Gunners travelled to the London Stadium for a clash with their capital rivals a short time ago, in the first of the weekend’s Premier League fixtures.

Arsenal headed into proceedings hoping to keep their positive recent run of form going, after Unai Emery’s men comfortably put Fulham and Blackpool to the sword in their last two outings.

Hosts West Ham, meanwhile, had picked up just 1 win from their last 4 league outings before today, though the Hammers did dispatch of Birmingham City in the FA Cup in their last outing last Saturday.

Rice the difference

The 90 minutes in the English capital this afternoon saw Manuel Pellegrini’s men impress, though, with the home side having eventually emerged with a surprise 1-0 victory.

Youngster Declan Rice bagged the only goal of the clash, after being set up by former Arsenal man Samir Nasri early in the second-half:

But, while West Ham did their part to secure an important 3 points, the Irons were aided to no end by a dismal showing from Arsenal.

The Gunners looked absolutely toothless for the majority of the fixture, with Unai Emery’s men having only begun to look in any way threatening following Aaron Ramsey’s introduction on the hour-mark.

The Welshman, who is of course due to depart the Emirates on a free transfer at the end of the season, added some much-needed drive and intent to Arsenal’s midfield, with fans of the North Londoners having since absolutely torn into their side’s boss over his continued decision to leave Ramsey out of his starting XI.
