Arsenal fans have reacted to former midfielder Francis Coquelin’s good showing against Manchester United on Tuesday evening. The Frenchman started on the right-wing for Valencia as they kept José Mourinho’s men to a 0-0 at Old Trafford in their Champions League group tie.
The 27-year-old left the Gunners for Valencia in January and has since been a regular starter for the Spanish club. Coquelin had a solid game against United on Tuesday handling the pressures of the likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford on the wing. He was eventually substituted in the 78th minute by Carlos Soler as Marcelino Garcia’s men survived and absorbed a lot of pressure by United in the final stages of the match.
Gunners fans however have taken to Twitter to have a few digs at the Red Devils following Coquelin’s performance. The result was another disappointing one for United who have now gone four games without picking up a victory.
Here are some of the reactions by Arsenal fans:
Francis Coquelin playing Paul Pogba off the park at Old Trafford. There’s your fairy tale. Wenger has done it again.

Francis Coquelin putting on an exhibition of close control at Old Trafford.
I wonder if Emery would’ve liked him. The last time we had a remotely competent defence, Coquelin was a fixture in the team — though he was part of that awful 16/17 team with Xhaka before being dropped.
