Arsenal were held to a 0-0 draw against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday night at the Emirates Stadium, but fans were not happy with the performance of one of their stars.
The point secured the Gunners’ place in the next stage of the Europa League as Unai Emery’s team extended their unbeaten run to 15 games.
The home side had a couple of chances to get all three points, however, an injury to Danny Welbeck took the gloss off of the result.
The forward landed badly after challenging for a header and needed to be stretched off the pitch after some lengthy treatment, which included him requiring oxygen.
Many of the fans had differing reactions to how the game went on social media, with some just pleased that they have qualified for the latter stages, whilst others were disappointed with the performances from some of their players.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan was singled out by a number of supporters as one of those that deserved criticism for his display in the game.
Many had felt that he had been poor and had been frustrating to watch with some claiming that they did not want to see him in the team anymore.
One even went as far to say that he had been their worst ever signing.
Here are some of their reactions:
People suggest he can’t play in different ways. He does and is lambasted.
Iwobi was terrible tonight, Mkhi and Auba so ineffective it’s untrue.
Smith-Rowe moves so well for a young guy.

Ramsey and mkhi can't be in this team. They lack a lot of quality in final third, we will struggle with deep blocks with those 2 in the team. Ramsey lack quality on the ball in between the lines and is too slow at times. Mkhi, well idk if hes good at anything these days

Mkhi worst signing after squillaci and Don't know what Ramsey is still doing at arsenal

Ramsey had a stinker. Mkhi was invisible and Smith-Rowe faded out. Welbeck injury seemed to dampen the mood at the Emirates. On to the next one. Get well soon @DannyWelbeck!

Sucks not to win today, but it's more than enough to seal qualification for the round of 32. Really gutted for Danny. Mkhi and Ramsey have average performances again. Can't wait for the game against Wolves. Come On You Gunners!

Ramsey and Mkhi need to go ASAP. Ramsey looks like he doesn't wanna play for us, not surprised. Hasn't a good game in ages. Mkhi is just simply awful, gets worse by the game. Both need to go in January.

Feels like the team couldn't be bothered about the game and the majority of the team was later hampered by Welbeck's injury. Mkhi & Ramsey are so disappointing. Lichtsteiner's past it, thank goodness he's only on a 1year contract. #afc

Terrible performance. Sell Mkhi and recall Nelson
