Some Arsenal fans think one player is ‘done and dusted’ at the club after today’s FA Cup loss

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to criticise Willian for yet another poor performance as the Gunners were knocked out of the FA Cup.

The 32-year-old arrived at the Emirates Stadium to much fanfare in the summer, signing a three-year deal reportedly worth £220,000-a-week after leaving Chelsea on a free transfer.

Willian hit the ground running in his first competitive game for Arsenal, registering two assists and putting in a man-of-the-match display in the Premier League opener at Fulham.

However, most of his performances since that game have been average at best and downright poor at worst, struggling to justify the Gunners’ outlay on him.

Willian has very much fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal, with just two substitute appearances in the Gunners’ last five Premier League games.

On Saturday, the Gunners travelled to Southampton for an FA Cup fourth-round clash, the first of two meetings between the two sides at the same ground in the space of a few days.

Willian was given the nod at No. 10 but sadly he was anonymous on the pitch once again.

Indeed, Arsenal were hardly able to go down the middle due to his inability to drop into spaces and, as a result, struggled to create chances.

This cost the Gunners dearly as there was only one goal in it in the end, Kyle Walker-Peters’ drilled cross coming off Gabriel Magalhaes for an own goal.

 

While most of Arsenal’s players underperformed on the day, a lot of fans are especially running out of patience with Willian, who continues to struggle.
