Arsenal fans react to performance of Reiss Nelson during European win

Arsenal continued their dominance in the Europa League with a resounding 4-1 win over Rapid Vienna in front of 2000 supporters at the Emirates Stadium.

Alexandre Lacazette, Pablo Mari, Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith Rowe scored for the Gunners, with Koya Kitagawa’s goal nothing more than a consolation.

Once again the game was used as a chance to get some minutes into Arsenal’s fringe players by Mikel Arteta and one player shone once again.

Reiss Nelson has been forced to wait patiently for his chance during 2020/21 and is yet to start a game in the Premier League.

Another assist last night, however, highlighted exactly what he is capable of and on this showing a domestic start can’t be too far away.

Arsenal are home and hosed in the Europa League and are now guaranteed to top Group B.

Next up for the Gunners is Tottenham in the North London derby at the weekend, with Arsenal keep to revive their Premier League campaign.

After last night, plenty of fans are calling for 12-time England under-21 international Nelson to start the contest at the expense of Willian.

Supporters were raving about the £15,000-a-week player on social media and he seems a popular figure at the moment.

Here is what the Arsenal fanbase were saying about the 20-year-old trickster.
