Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Yaya Sanogo's Palace debut

Arsenal warm up

Crystal Palace gave a debut to on-loan forward Yaya Sanogo this weekend, but what did Arsenal fans make of the striker's performance?

Arsenal's young forward recently completed his loan move to fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace, and the Frenchman was picked for his Eagles debut just a few days later.

The 21-year-old has plenty of competition for a starting berth at the Gunners, with the likes of Olivier Giroud, Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez all ahead of him in the pecking order, so it was no surprise to see him head out on loan in 2015.

Sanogo has made 20 appearances for Arsenal to date but he has only scored one goal in that time, so more top-flight experience cannot be a bad thing at a club where he is likely to play far more regularly.

But how did he do in Palace's 3-2 win against Burnley on Saturday?

As you can see from the statistics below, his passing accuracy needs plenty of work, with just 56 per cent of his attempts finding a teammate on this occasion.  He also had just one shot (off-target) and failed to provided any assists, although he did make one key pass.

Sanogo's age means he still has plenty of time to make it at Arsenal, but for now it is all about Palace as the youngster seeks to help Alan Pardew's men climb further up the table.

After the match we took to Twitter to see what Arsenal fans thought of Sanogo's performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
