Arsenal fans were left feeling unhappy following Freddie Ljungberg’s starting lineup in the defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion.
Ljungberg made three changes from the side that drew away to relegation-threatened Norwich City, bringing in Lucas Torreira, Hector Bellerin and Sokratis.
Record signing Nicolas Pepe was once again left on the bench for a Premier League game, a move that frustrated one fan:
Freddie is really starting to frustrate me with these lineups. Watch Saka and Guendouzi come on before Pepe.

Shkodran Mustafi seemed to be punished from his less-than-impressive performance against the Canaries as he was left out of the 18-man squad altogether.
Matteo Guendouzi missed his first league game of the season as he too was left out the starting XI as Torreira took his place.
Fans were less than pleased with the Swede for the lineup he chose as they took to Twitter to display their emotions.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
What did Willock or Lacazette do to deserve a start over Martinelli? Are we going to ignore this? Where is the meritocracy here? Absolutely baffling.

Freddie the fraud already showing why we need a top manager asap.
What has Xhaka done to start?
What has Sokratis done to start?
What has Lacazette done to start?
What has Willock done to start?

Should Arsenal give Freddie Ljungberg the job until the end of the season?
