Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Ramsey starting v Bournemouth
By Dominic Toner
Aaron Ramsey was named in the Arsenal’s starting line-up against Bournemouth – and the club’s supporters expressed their anger on Twitter with the decision.
The Gunners fans were displeased that he has been recalled to the starting XI, especially as he is set to operate on the right wing.
Ramsey is still trying to cement his place in the Arsenal side and has been recalled to the staring line-up on Tuesday night against Bournemouth after the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The 26-year-old has been used in several attacking positions by manager Arsene Wenger this season and is still searching for his first goal.
Arsenal fans were furious that Ramsey will once again operate from the right flank and were not pleased with Wenger’s decision.

Personally don't understand Ramsey out wide, has never worked in the past over many seasons. Perez and Chamberlain better options IMO.

Every game Ramsey has started for us, we've struggled! Hope it's different today! I wouldn't even start him on a Sunday league!

Happy too see Mustafi return? But why are we trying to squeeze Ramsey in again ???? start Ox or Perez wide.

Fantastic line up apart from Ramsey out wide which clearly doesn't work so I have no idea why Wenger keeps on putting him there

Ramsey has been unfortunate with a hamstring injury this season and that has seriously hampered his form.
The Wales international has made just 12 appearances across all competitions this campaign and has only contributed two assists.
He flourished in the number 10 role for his country at Euro 2016 and is yet to get that opportunity at Arsenal, with playmaker Mesut Ozil cementing his place in the position.
Ramsey has made 279 appearances during his time at the Emirates and will be desperate to find a regular starting position in the team this season.
