Arsenal fans were left aghast after Kieran Tierney was substituted for Sead Kolasinac in the club’s 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace.
The Scotland international, who completed the second-most dribbles, was making his Premier League debut in the clash as the Gunners let a two-goal lead slip.
His appearance yesterday was just his fifth showing in all competitions for the club, despite Unai Emery’s side having played 14 games this season (via Transfermarkt).
Tierney’s impact at the club has been brilliant, with the Scotsman already playing the most successful crosses from open play despite only playing 395 minutes in all competitions (via Orbinho).
Meanwhile, Kolasinac isn’t the most popular of figures among the north London faithful, with some fans blasting the Bosnia and Herzegovina international for his poor showing in the past (via HITC).
Fans took to Twitter to react to the substitution of the two men expressing their disbelief.
Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:
Possibly the worst sub I’ve ever witnessed in my life.
