Arsenal fans react to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being dropped

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has decided to drop Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang against Slavia Prague – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter have given their instant reaction to the significant piece of team news.

The Gunners are preparing for a crucial match against Czech side Slavia on Thursday night.

It’s the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals, which is a competition that the north London club really need to win to realistically get into Europe for next season due to poor domestic form.

Arsenal have released their team (official Twitter account) ahead of the 8pm kick-off, and it’s an eye-catching one.

Gunners captain Aubameyang has surprisingly been named with the substitutes.

The 31-year-old forward started in the weekend’s 3-0 Premier League defeat to Liverpool, and Arteta has decided to make the bold decision to drop him out of the XI for arguably the club’s biggest game of the season so far.

He’s scored 14 goals in 32 games across all competitions this season, but the speedster has looked anonymous at times when he’s not been on the scoresheet.

A selection of Arsenal fans on social media are stunned by the Aubameyang decision, but some have praised Arteta for sticking his neck on the line.

There will be all eyes on the front four of Alexandre Lacazette, Willian, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka to see how they perform without Aubameyang.

Here are some Gunners fans discussing the controversial line-up:
