Arsenal fan reaction split on Martin Keown’s outlook on Kolasinac

Arsenal eased their way to the top of Group E with a comfortable 3-0 win against Qarabag FK meaning they are level on points with Sporting Lisbon who, like the Gunners, have won both of their games so far. Following the game, club legend Martin Keown commented negatively on the performance of left-wing-back Sead Kolasinac which left some Arsenal fans in two minds as to who they side with.

On one side of the argument, a number of Arsenal fans were sympathetic with the Bosnian following a recent return from a long-term injury and understand that it will take time to become fully fit again, alongside having to adjust to Unai Emery’s philosophy.

On the other hand, some Gunners weren’t as sympathetic following the 25-year-old’s display and were critical of his defending, or lack of it, as even though wing-backs are allowed more leeway to attack, they still must be able to do the other side of the job. The quality to which Kolasinac can perform this side of his game when fully fit will play a pivotal factor in how much game-time he does get under Emery.
