Arsenal fans have been reacting on Twitter to the news of their latest XI for the clash with Crystal Palace, which includes Pablo Mari dropping to the bench.
Manager Mikel Arteta also includes Thomas Partey back on the bench, while David Luiz returns to the starting XI for a tricky tie with Roy Hodgson’s men.
The Gunners have found some form of late though and will be confident of the win. However, the omission of Mari has got Arsenal fans talking on social media, with some thinking it’s harsh from Arteta.
Mari has impressed of late but given the busy fixture schedule, a change is not surprising. Kieran Tierney also misses out in something of a shock for Gunners fans.
But it’s not stopped some Arsenal fans venting their feelings on Twitter, with a number of fans a bit bemused by the decision to leave Mari out in particular.
Nice Joke. Now post the real lineup.

I’m scared for us….and why is willian not at home? Pablo Mari has a good understanding with Rob Holding. I’m hoping for the best and fearing for the worst.
