Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson & Watford
With 12 minutes to go at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, Arsene Wenger made his third substitution.
Danny Welbeck replaced Alex Iwobi in the 67th, Shkodran Mustafi was switched for Calum Chambers in the 73rd.
Finally, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, seconds after scoring, was subbed out the game for Jack Wilshere.
When Wilshere was brought on the pitch, Reiss Nelson reacted badly on the sidelines.
Nelson, 18, was spotted throwing his bib and looking visibly upset when his last opportunity to come into the game disappeared.
Should Wenger, with his side 3-up, have turned to Nelson instead of Wilshere?
Reiss Nelson just threw his bib to the ground and is fuming, doesn’t seem to have taken not being brought on all that well. Got his coat back on as well so I guess he’s not coming on.

Arsenal 3-0 up with ten minutes to go. Maybe we’ll get to see Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, or Eddie Nketiah?
No, Jack Wilshere… pic.twitter.com/K0Wu5dgXV2

A bad week for Reiss Nelson
It’s been a bad week for Reiss Nelson after his Twitter account was apparently hacked.
As Tottenham had their Champions League dreams ended by Juventus, Arsenal fans were loving tweets from Reiss Nelson’s Twitter.
Reacting to a picture of Dele Alli on social media, Reiss Nelson wrote a tweet which said “suck my d*ck”.
Nelson quickly deleted that tweet and he apologised:
Sorry if the previous tweet offended anyone. My twitter was hacked and I just got it back now. Shout out to the hacker though, you could’ve killed me.

Arsenal 3 – Watford 0
Arsenal broke the deadlock in the eight minute. Mesut Ozil swung a free-kick from the left hand into the Watford box, and Shkodran Mustafi converted with a booming header.
Arsenal doubled their lead through their former Borussia Dortmund duo. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his third Arsenal goal from an assist from Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Arsenal wrapped up the win with a third from Mkhitaryan, after he scored on Thursday night against AC Milan.
