A new boss can give everyone a fresh slate to impress, and Nelson was once again given the opportunity to shine against Leeds on Monday night. Having gone in 0-0 at the break, it was the England U21 international who scored the only goal of the game to help the Gunners edge past Marcelo Bielsa’s Championship side to move into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Which two players were seen “hugging and kissing” each other in the tunnel ahead of Manchester United game against Liverpool, prompting Roy Keane to say that he was “disgusted” and claim that the players should have been preparing to “go to war”?

And after seeing his display, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the 5 foot 9 winger, with a few suggesting that the goal would do his confidence the world of good.

A couple of fans however were quick to point out that Nelson’s balance didn’t look right at all, with the 20-year-old struggling to stay on his feet on occasion and slipping to the ground in promising positions.

Another couple of fans of the north London side hoped he could improve his composure, with one supporter in particular urging him not to overthink it like former Arsenal star Theo Walcott.

With Arsenal’s squad lacking real out-and-out wingers at the moment – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a natural striker, is operating out on the left at the moment – there is a real opening for Nelson to really make his mark at the Emirates this season. The academy product will no doubt get some much-needed game time under Arteta thanks to the Gunners’ involvement in three competitions, and if he can add some goals to his game like he did against Leeds, then he could become a permanent fixture sooner rather than later.

Meanwhile, Arsenal fans react to their transfer interest in this proven Premier League ace.
