Arsenal: Fans all have the same criticism of Joe Willock after Olympiakos outing

Arsenal: Fans all have the same criticism of Joe Willock after Olympiakos outing

During last night’s tie with Olympiakos in the Europa League, plenty of Arsenal fans all had the same criticism of a certain Joe Willock. Indeed, the 20-year-old was torn into by those below for his lack of passing during the Gunners’ attacks. 

As per WhoScored, Willock actually made 26 passes (the sixth-highest in the team) at a completion rate of 80.8% (the eighth-highest) though supporters online were fuming with some of his decision making at times out in Greece. In the 74th minute, he was taken off for Nicolas Pepe before Alexandre Lacazette grabbed a late winner to extend Mikel Arteta’s unbeaten run in 2020.

Overall this season, Willock averages 13.1 passes per game so his output last night was well-above his average but the fact he had 7 unsuccessful touches appears to have invoked the ire of the Gunners faithful on social media. In fact, one fan even suggested Craig Eastmond – who now plays for Sutton United – was better.

With that in mind, here’s a closer look at what some of them saying.
