Arsenal fans are in a panic on Twitter as Sead Kolasinac misses out in tonight’s game against Liverpool in the Premier League, with youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles starting at left-back.

It’s fair to say Arsenal fans are not looking forward to this as they lament Kolasinac for some reason being named on the bench.
