Arsenal bounced back from their disappointing Europa League defeat to Rennes by beating Manchester United 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners were dogged and well-drilled during the win which came courtesy of Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goals.
The win kept Arsenal ahead of United in the quest for a Champions League spot.
Boss Unai Emery badly needed a big win following the midweek capitulation in France.
The Gunners have it all to do in the second leg of the tie but this victory will offer hope that things can be turned around.
Arsenal were impressive yesterday against United, playing on the front foot and stifling the attacking threat.
Emery’s team selection paid dividends but once again Denis Suarez began the game on the bench.
The winger was backed for big things following his January arrival from Barcelona but is yet to start a league game for the Gunners.
Suarez is yet to start a league game for the club since his arrival and fans are concerned.
The Spaniard was introduced for the last ten minutes against United but some Gunners supporters just don’t get his signing.
Others felt he did well yesterday and his arrival is dividing opinion at Arsenal
Following the game, fans took to Twitter to offer their thoughts on Suarez and the reactions are something of a mixed bag.

Can’t believe Arsenal fans were calling Denis Suarez our foreign exchange student yesterday 😂😂😂

Denis Suarez is getting our style little by little. I thought he came in quite good today. I am quite feeling good about him next season. Emery knows what he is doing. 💪🏼#COYG

I know we haven’t yet seen anything from him that supports my thought but I have a feeling @DenisSuarez6 is going to turn out to be one of the most important players next season for us.

That mazy run from Denis Suarez.
Man is getting sharper and will come in handy against teams who will want to park the bus. #Option

Can anyone tell me who Denis Suarez is and what he does? 🤷🏼♀️ #arsenal

Thoughts on Denis Suarez cameo today?
Personally I saw some real positive signs. He’s prepared to run at and beyond players with the ball which we don’t have too much of in our squad.
He could be a great long term addition, but he needs a little extra beef 💪

Still doesn’t seem anywhere close to the level we need. The performance that really caught my eye today was Aaron Ramsey. That’s a huge player walking out the door- we should be aiming to improve from here, and Denis Suarez just feels like a massive downgrade in quality.

Eager to see more of Denis Suarez after that encouraging cameo, glides well with the ball over short distances, reminds me of Rosicky.

Anyone want to talk about Denis Suarez ?
Obvious to me the club is rebuilding him physically and mentally and quietly.
He has something. One to watch.

I do feel Denis Suarez has a lot to offer just needs that chance

Denis Suarez is lidl Ramsey.

Denis Suarez had a few really nice runs, those are the sorts of cameo appearances he needs to make if he wants starts. Good stuff.

@DenisSuarez6 is playing like iniesta

Game must be over. Denis Suarez being readied.
— James Benge (@jamesbenge) March 10, 2019
Remind me why we went to get this Denis Suarez again?
He’s been a waste of a loan fee so far.

Denis Suarez is a gem
