Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Oxlade-Chamberlain inclusion v Ludogorets
By Dominic Toner
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been named in the starting XI against Ludogorets – and the Arsenal supporters were pleased with the decision on Twitter.
The Gunners host the Bulgarian side on Wednesday night in their Champions League group stages and Arsene Wenger has made four changes to his side.
David Ospina, Kieran Gibbs, Francis Coquelin and Oxlade-Chamberlain have come into the team for the European clash.
Petr Cech, Nacho Monreal, Granit Xhaka and Alexi Iwobi have been left out after starting against Swansea on Saturday in the Premier League.
Arsenal announced their line-up on their official Twitter account.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was only used as a second-half substitute in the match against Swansea and has been given the opportunity to impress by Wenger.
Arsenal supporters are hoping that the Englishman grabs his chance and delivers an impressive performance.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Oxlade-Chamebrlain, 23, has been restricted with his game time this season and academy graduate Iwobi has been the preferred option on the wing.
He has completed 90 minutes just once this campaign, in the EFL Cup against Nottingham Forest, and will be desperate to make a good impression.
The attacking midfielder has scored two goals in his nine appearances this season, but is still trying to cement his place in the starting XI.
