Mattéo Guendouzi's Animated Reaction To Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Missing Sitter Is Brilliant
Matteo Guendouzi produced a crazy reaction to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missing a sitter against Chelsea on Saturday.
The 19-year-old started his second Premier League game in a row by slotting in midfield.
Though he was unable to steer his side to victory as Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2 despite a spirited comeback which saw the visitors come from two-down.
While Arsenal eventually drew level in the first-half, Aubameyang had a glorious opportunity to make it one-a-piece following Pedro's ninth-minute opener.
Guendouzi pierced a delightful ball to Hector Bellerin who found the Gabon striker. But he was unable to convert, blazing the ball over the bar to the frustration of Unai Emery and Arsenal fans.
Not to mention his teammates including the French teenager who reacted in animated fashion by furiously beating the ground.
Match of the Day surfaced the clip with Ian Wright liking what he saw: "t's good to see, someone who's disappointed like that."
Aubameyang took to social media after fluffing his lines.
Today i missed tomorrow Must Be better !!

Guendouzi offered a lot in the middle of the park and his performance got Arsenal fans talking. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
85': On a brighter note, Guendouzi has looked promising today. He's got a big future ahead of him :star:

100 per cent pass accuracy for Guendouzi in that first half.

Arsenal have an amazing find in Guendouzi. Their best player for the second game running.

Guendouzi has so, so much talent. Everything has to be invested into him, he has to be the mainstay of our midfield.
Torreira-Guendouzi is the future.

Have to give credit to Guendouzi. The kid is 19 and his first two games were against Chelsea and City and he's never stopped trying. Offering way more than Ozil, Mkhitaryan, and Xhaka. Those three should be ashamed. Done absolutely nothing.

Guendouzi is only 19 years old man
He's about to bench Granit Xhaka. He is absolutely brilliant. He looked absolutely marvellous today in midfield.
Kid is literally cementing his spot in the first XI

Arsenal resume their league campaign next Saturday when they host West Ham, who have also lost their first two games of the season.
