Arsene Wenger has named Alex Iwobi ahead of Danny Welbeck in his Arsenal starting XI to face Bayern Munich on Wednesday – and fans are furious.

The Gunners boss made two changes to his side for their Champions League knockout-round clash, with Granit Xhaka and David Ospina coming into the side in place of Theo Walcott and Petr Cech.

Arsenal announced their confirmed line-up on their official Twitter account ahead of kick-off.

However, fans were less than impressed to see Wenger name Welbeck among the substitutes, and they took to social media to unleash their fury.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Welbeck missed much of the first-half of the season with injury, but returned to the first-team fray against Preston in a brief substitute appearance on January 7.

However, the 26-year-old has started just one game since making his long-awaited comeback, leading the line for Arsenal in their impressive 5-o victory over Southampton in the FA Cup on January 28.

Welbeck marked the appearance with two goals and an assist, but has still yet to be recalled by Wenger to the starting XI.

The Southampton game was only the first time Welbeck has played more than 20 minutes in a game this season, having made six appearances.

Arsenal can make a real statement if they can come away from the Allianz Arena with a victory, and it will give them great confidence heading into the second-leg at the Emirates in March.

In other Arsenal news, fans have urged the club to sign Marco Verratti following his display for PSG against Barcelona on Tuesday.
