Many Arsenal fans were left slamming the display of Willian as the holders were dumped out of the FA Cup by Southampton following a 1-0 away loss.
Although there were several bad performances on the day, Willian’s stood out to many members of the Emirates Stadium faithful, as they went out with a whimper thanks to a Gabriel own goal in the first half of the game.
Should Arsenal start Willian?
Given his chance to impress Mikel Arteta, who decided to rotate his team given that they have a Premier League match against the Saints on Tuesday night, he failed to do himself any favours.
The Brazil international lost out on 80% of his duels, and also failed to make a single accurate cross or long ball, all while losing possession of it no fewer than 10 times, earning him a quite measly 6.5 overall rating on Sofascore.
Arsenal fan reaction to Willian display
These Gooners slammed his performance on Twitter, with one AFC supporter even going as far as to call the 32-year-old ‘useless’:
“I honestly think Willian should never wear an Arsenal shirt again. How many chances are we going to give him?!”
“Willian is as useless as Willock”
“Surely someone will take Willian off us. Just knowing he’s here winds me up.”
“I thought Willian would be okay or have good moments but man, I can’t think of a more terrible signing than him, I’m blown away, just blown away.”
“Get Willian, Pepe, Nketiah and Elneny out of the squad, the academy is the future”
“He is picking players that have constantly been terrible. If he has anything about him, he will drop Willian for good, sell Nketiah whilst we still have a chance integrate Balogun into the first team and find a left footed left back to support Tierney”
