“Arteta really ain’t messing about” – These Arsenal fans react to big selection decision vs Southampton

Posted by

Loads of Arsenal fans are glad to see Mikel Arteta being strong on young midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, who has been dropped from the squad entirely for tonight’s game against Southampton.

The Frenchman has not been at his best for some time now, and clearly didn’t impress Arteta with his antics in the Brighton game over the weekend.

Arsenal fans clearly aren’t sad to see the back of Guendouzi, whose future at the Emirates Stadium may well be in some doubt after his behaviour in the Brighton game.
