Arsenal fans react to confirmed starting XI against Tottenham

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made two changes to the side that thrashed Everton 5-1 at the Emirates Stadium last weekend for the huge North London derby clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday, and Gunners fans have been quick to have their say on the selection.

Jack Wilshere and Mohamed Elneny come in for Alex Iwobi and last week’s hat-trick hero Aaron Ramsey, with the former on the substitutes’ bench and the latter not in the squad at all.

Wenger’s men currently lie in six position – four points adrift of their arch-rivals and five below the Champions League qualification spots – and they know that a win could be vital to their hopes of securing a top-four finish at the end of the campaign.

Arsenal supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Wenger’s selection for the derby, and while one said “finally Iwobi is on the bench where he belongs”, another said “exactly how I wanted our line-up to be”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
