Arsenal fans on Twitter were raving over Maitland-Niles earlier - Arsenal

Ainsley Maitland-Niles has had a great couple of weeks. Arsenal may have been pumped 5-1 by Liverpool, but the young versatile midfielder put in a performance on the highest order, scoring the opening goal and coming off the pitch as the only Arsenal man capable of keeping his head held high.

Maitland-Niles is a massive fan favourite at The Emirates. The fact that the young versatile midfielder came through the club’s ranks as a youth player will only help his cause, however, he has struggled for game time this season after suffering a nasty injury on the opening day of the season in a 2-0 home loss against Manchester City.

The Gunners have been lucky enough to see the 21-year-old feature in five straight games, though, including three 90 minutes. Unai Emery is starting to rely upon the youngster, and with his ability to turn out as both a left-back and a right-back, his versatility is something that can be used to great effect in the absence of the majority of Arsenal’s defence.

A lot of the Gunners were delighted with Maitland-Niles performance today and will hope the youngster can kick on from here and become one of the first names on Unai Emery’s teamsheet.
