Need VAR to check he's on the pitch – Arsenal fans destroy one player after shocker v Chelsea
Arsenal came away with a battling draw in an evenly matched game in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge.
They would have taken that result at the start of the game, especially with a weakened starting XI that saw Alexis Sanchez on the bench amid heavy speculation linking him with a move to Man City.
Alex Iwobi played well, which he needed to after his controversial partying antics ahead of the FA Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
And Jack Wilshere looked back to his best in the Arsenal midfield – something Arsenal fans will be delighted with. Unfortunately he went off injured early in the second half.
However, Arsenal fans weren’t happy with all their players.
Danny Welback had a poor performance for the Gunners and he came in for some scathing criticism on Twitter.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from disgruntled Arsenal fans:
Welbeck looks a shadow of himself lately. Usually gives Chelsea nightmares through running alone.

What does welbeck do?

First quarter gone and we’re still in it. Steady if not spectacular. Welbeck and Lacazette not doing a lot
— Andy Moore (@GoonerUS) January 10, 2018
What is the point of a Welbeck? No seriously…
— ArseStat (@Arsestat_) January 10, 2018
Iwobi has played a lot better but Welbeck offers nothing.

Welbeck = headless????
Chambers = couldn’t keep the ball, on his own, in a phone box
Set pieces = woeful
Lacazette = no service and getting frustrated
Not enough passion from anyone other than Jack Wilshere

If Welbeck has lost pace then what is his use now? His movement is shocking as it is. Theo is still a bigger asset to us. Bring him on put Iwobi LW

Welbeck is soo dopey

If Danny Welbeck gets a new contract at Arsenal, you'll know where our ambitions lie. He's done as a player.

Welbeck runs off the ball are up there with the worst in the world

We need VAR just to check Welbeck is dtill on pitch
