Arsenal's young talent made his debut - but at wing-back.
Arsenal fans got a glimpse of the future last night as Reiss Nelson made his first ever start for the club in the Carabao Cup.
17-year-old Nelson has been tearing it up for the under-23s and is regarded as one of the club's most talented teenagers in years.
He was selected to start in last night's 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers.
However Nelson was not quite given free reign to thrive. The young winger was asked to play at wing-back, meaning his defensive duties prevented him from playing his usual game.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles had a similar problem in the Europa League last week, but Arsene Wenger corrected this at half-time and switched him to midfield.
Nelson had no such reprieve, and fans were left frustrated with their manager's decision, concerned that he is hampering his early development.
The teenager has huge promise, but his incisive attacking usually seen at academy level was not as strong last night..
Here is a look at how Arsenal fans reacted on Twitter to Nelson playing out of position...
Can see Wenger ruining Reiss Nelson. He isn't a fkn wing back and won't develop there, the same really with Maitland Niles— GoonerDub (@johnanthonyr4) September 20, 2017
Reiss Nelson at RWB is almost as pointless as getting an Arsenal shirt with Alexis on the back next season— Jason (@JasonJhuti) September 20, 2017
Wenger really played Reiss Nelson wingback you know, this guy is really trying to kill all our young talent— Choupo Madting (@Chrisssssb_) September 20, 2017
Playing Reiss Nelson at RWB is a complete waste.— Arsenaloholic (@ArsenalohoIic) September 20, 2017
Wenger will ruin Reiss Nelson.. it is just inevitable— Chuma (@Bizzle025) September 20, 2017
Classic Wenger. Crowbarring Reiss Nelson in at wing back when he's been excelling as a game breaking attacker this season. So dumb.— Rowd (@RowdenJRSG) September 20, 2017
Poor Reiss Nelson, most exciting academy talent in years and where does he play him....Right wing back.— Jon (@Jonnyarsenal) September 20, 2017
Can someone please tell Arsene Wenger that Reiss Nelson is not a RWB ffs— NothingToSay (@nicoarian1911) September 20, 2017
