'I'm in love', 'Size of a tractor' - Arsenal fans react to towering Kolasinac display v Cheslea

By Abigail Withey

Arsenal fans have expressed their delight on Twitter after new signing Sead Kolasinac scored an impressive debut header during the club’s Community Shield clash against Chelsea on Sunday.

The Gunners were awarded the shield after their 4-1 victory on penalties when the rivals finished 1-1 after 90 minutes at Wembley.

The 24-year-old defender wasn’t named in Arsene Wenger’s starting XI and instead came on for injured Per Mertesacker in the 32nd minute after the skipper clashed with Gary Cahill which left the German with a nasty wound.

The new signing found the back of the net in the 83rd minute with an excellent assist from Granit Xhaka and fans were delighted with his performance.

Many supporters have compared the Bosnia-Herzegovina international to a tank because of his strength and power on the pitch.

Here is a selection of their messages:

The Bosnia-Herzegovina defender was recruited from Schalke on a free-transfer and was the first Arsenal signing of the summer transfer window.

He might not be a household name, but he was included in the Bundesliga team of last season, and Arsenal fans will be looking forward to more of his attacking talents in the season to come.

Arsenal host Leicester at the Emirates next Friday in their Premier League opener, and will be hoping for a repeat performance of their Community Shield efforts.

In other Arsenal news, this Gunners striker could be heading to Everton this summer in £30m deal.
