Arsenal fans angry at Mikel Arteta despite record-breaking 6-0 Sheffield United win

Arsenal fans angry at Mikel Arteta despite record-breaking 6-0 Sheffield United win

Arsenal fans weren't best pleased with Mikel Arteta despite a 6-0 hammering of Sheffield United.

Arsenal may have blitzed Sheffield United 6-0 on Monday night but that didn't stop some fans from being angry with Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners kept up with title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City with a resounding victory at Bramall Lane.

Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli, Kai Havertz, Declan Rice and Ben White were all on target in yet another high-scoring away game.

Arsenal, who were 4-0 up in 25 minutes, became the first side in English league history to win three consecutive away games by at least five goals after recent routs on the road against Burnley and West Ham.

But it seemed like not every Arsenal supporter was satisfied as some were furious with Arteta's substitution choices.

He elected to bring on the likes of Fabio Vieira, Thomas Partey, Gabriel Jesus, Leandro Trossard and Cedric Soares.

But Emile Smith-Rowe was overlooked and watched the entirety of the victory from the bench.

The 23-year-old has struggled for gametime this term, managing 357 minutes in all competitions.

There was a spell out injured with a knee problem but some felt as though Smith-Rowe should have got an opportunity in the latest outing.

One fan fumed: "Free Emile Smith Rowe, it’s actually a joke that Cedric has been brought on before him. If Arteta wants to take off Ben White then play Partey at RB like he did at the start of the season and put Emile in the midfield."

A second added: "He's done with ESR isn't he? His decisions over the last six-months echo that."

A third said: "I’m a big ESR fan and I have never see someone who hate him more then our manager."

A fourth opined: "ESR should leave in the summer or he’s going to end up wasting his career."

A fifth agreed: Free my dawg Emile Smith-Rowe, winning 5- 0 at half time and he still couldn’t get a single minute."

Smith-Rowe did manage cameos against Newcastle and Burnley and will be hoping to take the pitch on Saturday against Brentford.

He came through the ranks at Arsenal and scored ten goals under Arteta in the 2021/22 campaign after being handed the No.10 shirt.

But his future at the club looks bleak and he may have to move on in the summer to get his career back on track.
