Some Arsenal fans react to Houssem Aouar’s display and body language last night

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on Houssem Aouar’s display for Lyon last night, during which he was sent off.

According to ESPN, the 22-year-old remains Mikel Arteta’s top target for the remainder of the transfer window, the Spaniard reportedly eager to build his team around the midfielder.

Indeed, the outlet claims Arsenal remain frontrunners for Aouar’s signature, though player sales would be required for the Gunners to meet his €60million (£55million) price tag.

Admittedly, the Lyon captain didn’t have his best game last night, cutting a frustrated figure for much of the first half before being shown a straight red in the 44th minute.

Aouar was initially cautioned for his challenge on Arnaud Souquet, but after consulting VAR, the referee dismissed the Lyon man – the first sending-off of his career.

Below is some of the Arsenal fan reaction to Aouar’s display, dismissal and body language:

 

Montpellier took the lead in the 38th minute through a Teji Savanier penalty and doubled their advantage via the same player just before the hour.

Memphis Depay halved the deficit for Lyon with a spot kick of his own on 82 minutes, with Vitorino Hilton’s prior sending-off seeing both sides finish the game with ten men.
