'Joking' - Arsenal fans furious with Wenger as this player starts v West Ham

Arsenal fans were less than happy when news broke that Sead Kolasinac was going to start against West Ham in the League Cup quarter-final on Tuesday.

Kolasinac has established himself as a fan favourite at the club after joining from Schalke in the summer.

Fans were not expecting to see the defender feature against West Ham, as Wenger was expected to rest players involved with the first team set-up as they play again on Friday.

The Gunners have never won the League Cup under Arsene Wenger despite making two finals.

Last season, Arsenal were eliminated from the tournament by Southampton, which meant that the Gunners have lost their last four home ties in the competition when they’ve had Premier League opposition.

Arsenal and West Ham recently met in the league at the London Stadium and couldn’t be separated, settling for a 0-0 draw.

However, both sides will be disheartened to realise that whoever has won the League Cup tie between the sides previously has gone on to be a losing semi-finalist.

Although it was clear the Gunners fans were more disheartened by Kolasinac appearance in the line-up. A decision which probably means he doesn’t start on Friday.

Here are the best reactions from angry Arsenal fans:

Arsenal are next in action on Friday as they play Liverpool in the Premier League.

The Gunners currently sit fifth just behind Liverpool in the table, with one less point.
