Arsenal struggled in their pre-season game against Chelsea.
There were questions from some Arsenal fans when the club splashed out on Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos earlier this summer.
The 30-year-old centre-back did not find it easy last night when the club took on Chelsea in a pre-season game.
Arsenal drew the game 1-1, with Antonio Rudiger scoring the winner for the Blues before Alexandre Lacazette scored a last minute equaliser.
Lining up alongside Shkodran Mustafi, the pair did not look comfortable, an ominous sign ahead of their Premier League opener against Manchester City.
Sokratis' acquisition was a signing which split opinion when it was made this summer, and it is too early to write him off after one difficult pre-season game.
Yet the fans who did have reservations believe they are being proven right already, and that manager Unai Emery could regret not choosing a different defensive alternative this summer.
Star defender Laurent Koscielny remains out with an injury, and youngster Rob Holding is still regarded only as a back-up option.
Here is a look at how some fans reacted on Twitter to his performance...
