Arsenal host Crystal Palace in the English Premier League this afternoon hoping to bounce back from defeat last time out against Bournemouth.
The Gunners are at risk of completely dropping out of contention for a top four place come the end of the season. Failing to win against the Eagles today could see the points gap to fourth stretch to double figures by the end of the weekend’s action.
Arsene Wenger has named his starting eleven and while there are few surprises with the selection, supporters aren’t happy with one choice in particular.

Fans are fed of seeing 21-year-old Alex Iwobi continue to start for the Gunners with his poor form a real point of contention in recent months.
The Nigerian international has just three assists and one goal this season in Arsenal colours, but Wenger has remained loyal and continued to name him in his starting eleven week after week.
Supporters took to Twitter to discuss his selection this afternoon…
If there was ever any doubt that Wenger is senile and can no longer decipher talent, just remember that Iwobi keeps making it in to the starting lineup.

Iwobi has no excuses today if he is playing on the left, should be dropped permanently if he doesn't perform.

Only thing worse than Iwobi getting into the team is seeing his competition on the bench. The banter years are back #AFCvCPFC

Actually I don`t know what Iwobi should do to be dropped. Poor form – he gets the place, night party – gets the place, wasting chance – gets the place. I really want the same relation to players like Perez or Campbell.

Just when I was happy to not see Chambers and Holding in the line up, I see El Nenny and Iwobi.

Elneny & Iwobi starting today. I mean, this is a whole new level of Banter. AMN should be in the middle imo.

Elneny and Iwobi really?!?? Play AMN in there and give him ago instead of at Lb. I’ve seen what Elneny can do and isn’t much.
