Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter in anger at Arsene Wenger’s starting XI for the Europa game v Ostersunds.
Wenger has had issues with his attack, with Alexandre Lacazette ruled out for 4-5 weeks following an injury and new striker Pierre-Michel Aubameyang cup-tied after Borussia Dortmund dropped into the Europa from the Champions League.
His side should still have the firepower to get past the Swedish minnows but fans aren’t impressed after Wenger decided to give Danny Welbeck the task of leading the Arsenal line.
The team news was announced on the Arsenal Twitter page on Thursday afternoon.

New signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan gets to play as Man United are still in the Champions League and haven’t dropped to the Europa.
And fans are delighted to see Ainsley Maitland-Niles in midfield, but they’re concerned Welbeck doesn’t have the goals in him they need tonight.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from Arsenal fans ahead of the 6pm kick-off.
Oh god, Welbeck! WHY?!?!?

Honestly would rather Eddie up top. Danny only seems capable of scoring by accident these days

Nketiah and Reiss Nelson > Welbeck and Iwobi
