Arsenal fans react on Twitter as West Ham loanee Jenkinson scores for England under-21s

Carl Jenkinson

Arsenal star on loan at West Ham scored for England's under-21s against Portugal.

Carl Jenkinson's impressive form has continued, with the right-back scoring for England's under-21 side against Portugal.

The right-back has played well in recent weeks for West Ham, since having a slow start to the season thanks to injury.

He was loaned out by Arsenal after the Gunners bought French international right-back Mathieu Debuchy.

While it seems to have worked out well for the Hammers, for Arsenal it is not looking like such a wise move.

Debuchy has missed a month through injury and is out until late December, and injuries in central defence have meant an extended run for the inexperienced Calum Chambers.

With left-back Nacho Monreal having a particularly poor spell in the middle, Jenkinson being available would have been ideal for Arsenal right now, and his goal for the under-21s continue to show the club what they are missing.

Whether the defender has a recall clause in his contract in January is unclear, but doing so could prove to be a big mistake.

In the New Year, Arsenal will have Debuchy and Laurent Koscielny back fit, and Jenkinson would potentially be returning only to sit on the substitute's bench.
