‘Not good enough’ - Arsenal fans slate one player during PSV clash

The Gunners faithful have taken firm aim at a member of the club’s midfield ranks


Supporters of Premier League outfit Arsenal have taken to social media in their numbers on Thursday, to make their frustrations with one player clear.

Mikel Arteta’s troops, of course, are currently locked in action.

After extending their advantage atop the English top-flight table at the weekend, the Gunners tonight turned their attentions towards matters on the continent, in a rescheduled Europa League group stage encounter with Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven.

Arsenal headed into proceedings in the knowledge that a victory would see them open up a hefty five-point gap at the top of the Group A standings.

And, as things stand at the Emirates, all three points is precisely what the evening’s visitors are headed towards.

This comes owing to the latest piece of brilliance on the part of the rejuvenated Granit Xhaka:

Whilst one member of Mikel Arteta’s midfield ranks continues to thrive, though, another is having an altogether more tough time of things.

The player in question? Sambi Lokonga.

Belgian starlet Lokonga was afforded his latest chance to impress this evening, handed a starting berth in the middle of the park in a bid to afford some much-needed rest to Thomas Partey.

After struggling to make his presence known before ultimately being hooked midway through the 2nd-half, though, the Arsenal faithful have not been shy in making their feelings regarding the former RSC Anderlecht talent crystal clear:
