Revealed: 47% of Arsenal fans want Nelson recalled in January

Arsenal have impressed at the start of the season by winning nine consecutive matches across all competitions heading into tonight’s clash with Leicester City.

The good news for Unai Emery’s side has continued with loanee Reiss Nelson excelling in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim, scoring twice for England’s U21 side during the international break and continuing his fine form by netting twice in the league on Saturday.

Nelson has thrived with consistent first-team opportunities and it could leave Arsenal in a sticky situation as the Gunners are short of options in the wide positions – so we asked fans whether the starlet should be recalled in January, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan the most likely to lose his spot if that were to occur.

The results were fairly even as 47% fans called for Nelson to be given a first-team role at Arsenal by bringing him back in January but a majority of 53% wanted Emery to keep faith in Mkhitaryan for the time being.
