Arsenal fans on Twitter call for Maitland-Niles to be used in midfield

Arsenal fans on Twitter call for Maitland-Niles to be used in midfield - Arsenal

So far in his Arsenal career, Ainsley Maitland-Niles has been shoehorned into a number of different positions. The versatile midfield man has been used as a full-back on both sides, a right-winger, a defensive midfielder and a box-to-box midfielder, and the fans have been having their say on where he’s best used.

The Gunners love their young academy product and always enjoy seeing him start wherever he plays. This season has mostly seen the youngster deployed as a full-back considering the amount of injuries they’ve had at the back this season. However, the fans seem to believe that the 21-year-old would be best utilised as a box-to-box midfielder, and have been calling for that to happen.

Unai Emery has little choice at the moment, though. He’s missing as many as four defenders through injury and whilst last season saw Maitland-Niles thrive in midfield, a position where he won the man of the match award at Old Trafford, this season simply hasn’t offered the Englishman the opportunity to be fielded anywhere other than as a makeshift defensive option.

The Gunners want to see more of Maitland-Niles in midfield, although they may need to wait until they have some defensive reinforcements for that to happen.
