Sometimes you just can’t win as a football manager.

Unai Emery’s side had one of their best performances of the season on Thursday, as Gabriel Martinelli looked extremely impressive and Kieran Tierney grabbed an assist.
However, David Seaman seemingly wasn’t happy with the former PSG boss’ decision to bring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on in the 79th minute of their Europa League win.
Can anyone tell me why @Aubameyang7 in on?????!!!!!!!!!!!

The former goalkeeper was baffled by the manager’s switch, and you can kind of understand why.
The Gabonese striker is one of Arsenal’s most important players, so bringing him on for ten minutes when you’re already 4-0 up seems like a bit of an unnecessary injury risk.
Fortunately, the Gunners striker didn’t pick up a problem against Standard Liege, but he easily could have done, and if he had, Emery would have undoubtedly received even more criticism for making the substitution.
The Gunners now face a home clash against Bournemouth before the international break.
