Arsenal fans frustrated by Perez injury

Arsenal supporters have aired their frustrations after Lucas Perez was ruled out of Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Bayern Munich with a hamstring problem.

The 28-year-old has not really been able to showcase his abilities since moving to the Emirates from Deportivo La Coruna for a reported £17m fee last summer.

Injuries have contributed to his lack of game time, which currently sits at 17 appearances in all competitions.

Also, manager Arsene Wenger has regularly preferred Alexis Sanchez to play through the middle.

Perez was expected to be named on the bench for the first leg of their last-16 tie against Bayern at the Allianz Arena.

However, it was confirmed on Tuesday that the Spaniard is nursing a hamstring problem and did not travel with the squad to Germany.

It is not expected to be a major issue, which means that he could be available for this weekend’s FA Cup fifth-round tie against Sutton.

Despite that, fans are growing increasingly frustrated by the amount of time he spends on the treatment table.
