Ozil & Torreira: Arsenal fans react to line-up vs West Ham

West Ham vs Arsenal

Arsenal travel to West Ham in Saturday’s early kick-off.

The Gunners start the weekend in 5th place, just three points off a Champions League spot.

However, Arsenal are not in the best form and have won just two of their last five league games.

Arsenal did pick up a 3-0 win in their FA Cup tie vs Blackpool last weekend though.

West Ham, on the other hand, start the day in 10th place.

The Hammers have failed to win in their last two league games but a win vs Arsenal could see them move as high as 7th.

West Ham fans will also be pleased to note that Marko Arnautovic is starting today despite being linked with a move to China.

Arsenal line-up revealed

While West Ham fans seem largely pleased with their starting eleven, Arsenal are receiving a lot of backlash for their team to face West Ham.

The two biggest issues Arsenal fans have been voicing their displeasure at are the absences of Lucas Torreira and Mesut Ozil.

Since joining Arsenal Torreira has proven himself to be a quality midfielder.

So, Torreira being left on the bench vs West ham has somewhat baffled Arsenal fans.

Mesut Ozil, on the other hand, has been in and out of the Arsenal squad this season. But the German is completely absent from the matchday squad on Saturday.

Social media reaction

Here is how some Arsenal fans reacted to Torreira and Ozil not starting vs the Hammers.
