Arsenal fans on Twitter react to Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ super Rennes performance

Arsenal fans on Twitter have been raving about the excellent performance of wing-back Ainsley Maitland-Niles against Rennes on Thursday evening.

Following his wonderful Manchester United showing, the 21-year-old started at right wing-back for the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium, within a 3-4-1-2 formation.

He was instrumental in a 3-0 victory that saw Unai Emery’s men overturn a 3-1 deficit to progress to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League, capping off his first goal in European football with impressive statistics like 79 per cent pass completion and five completed tackles.

And Gooners were absolutely lapping up the homegrown player’s showing on social media with one proclaiming that he’s getting “better game by game” having found a settled position for now, despite becoming something of a utility man in his short career so far.

Meanwhile, other supporters congratulated the starlet by calling him his affectionate nickname of “Birdman,” praised up Maitland-Niles’ all-around performance on the special night and advocated for the England youth international winning the Man of the Match award in a game of many eye-catching individual Arsenal displays.
