Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made three changes to the side that were beaten 3-0 by Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday for the trip to face Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Sunday, and Gunners fans have been quick to have their say on the selection.

Calum Chambers, Jack Wilshere and Alex Iwobi come in for Hector Bellerin, Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck, with Bellerin and Welbeck on the substitutes’ bench and Ramsey not even making the squad on the south coast.
Wenger’s men are in desperate need of the three points in order to keep alive their extremly slim chances of securing a top-four finish, with wins for Liverpool and arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday leaving them 13 points adrift of the Champions League qualification spots with just 10 matches of the season remaining.
Arsenal supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the Frenchman’s selection, and while one said “LOL BELLERIN HAS FINALLY BEEN DROPPED”, another said “pathetic management once again”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
LOL BELLERIN HAS FINALLY BEEN DROPPED

Iwobi for Ramsey?! What the hell

Why Iwobi and Xhaka are on the pitch, and keep Elneny on bench? Pathetic management once again! Can't wait to see Wenger leaves!

Your kidding right ? Chambers ? Iwobi ?

Few late changes to the Arsenal line up, hence @Arsenal’s delay in getting the starting XI graphic out. Ramsey banished to the sidelines for being the rat.
