‘Hope He Retires’ – Some Fans Savage ‘Awful’ Arsenal Man For Display vs Brighton

Some Arsenal fans savaged Stephan Lichtsteiner on social media after his poor header led to a Brighton equaliser during the 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium this evening.

Lichtsteiner was recalled at right-back today with Ainsley Maitland-Niles dropping to the bench following his run-out during the win against Burnley at the Emirates last time out.

The game started well for the Gunners as we opened the scoring in the 7th minute when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang curled home a superb goal following some great work from Alexandre Lacazette.

We could have doubled our lead with Aubameyang missing a superb chance to make it 2-0 and Arsenal were made to pay as Lichtsteiner’s poor defensive header from a simple ball over the top led to the Brighton equaliser in the 35th minute.

It capped a poor game from the Swiss international as he was woeful in defence and wasted a number of decent opportunities going forward with his crossing particularly suspect.

Some Arsenal fans were quick to criticise the full-back with one saying he ‘offers nothing’ to our game while another supporter claimed the 34-year-old has been ‘awful’.

Several fans demanded Unai Emery picks Maitland-Niles over Lichtsteiner from now on while another suggested the former Juventus defender should do the decent thing and retire.

It’s safe to say it was a poor performance from Lichtsteiner against Brighton today and he’s proven to be a disappointing signing since arriving on a free transfer in the summer.

The sooner Hector Bellerin returns from his calf injury the better as Arsenal sorely miss him and we clearly don’t have any adequate back-up when the Spaniard is unavailable.

    Emery is proving not to be a very good manager. It is absurd to get rid of Ramsey and Ozil. They should both be starting every game. They are the best two players to feed Aubameyang and Lacazette who should also be starting every game together. The entire defense is a mess. Xhaka sucks. Guendouzi turns the ball over too much. Iwobi is a moron. I don’t understand what Emery is thinking.
