Some Arsenal supporters have criticised Reiss Nelson’s display against Nottingham Forest, even after he claimed a goal and an assist in the contest.
There were high hopes for Nelson at Arsenal this term, after he enjoyed a successful loan in the Bundesliga last term.
The youngster is yet to really make a huge impact on Arsenal’s first-team, but he did get his first senior goal for the club last night.
Nelson finished well from close range to help Arsenal on their way to a comprehensive victory.
Some Gunners fans praised Nelson for his contribution during the game.
But there were others who were less than impressed by the England youth international’s display.
Some Gunners fans feel that Nelson isn’t really putting pressure on those ahead of him in Arsenal’s line-up, and have suggested that he has a lot of improvement left to do before he is ready to challenge for a regular spot in Unai Emery’s squad.
Nelson has been disappointing for me again.— The Gooner Talk (@TheGoonerTalkTv) September 24, 2019
Really isn’t staking a claim to be in the line up over Saka right now.
Delighted he got that goal but compared to the other young players he’s behind for sure. Had more chances then any other young player and still hasn’t ever put in a performance more then 7/10 and that’s simply not good enough.— Smokey (@ItzArsenal420) September 24, 2019
Looks really average compared to all the other youngsters— IvanBa (@Ivanba213) September 24, 2019
Nelson is the most overrated youngster at the club— dave (@daviehere) September 24, 2019
Just seems very despondent at the minute. Needs to find his purple patch.— jordaeschi (@jordaeschi) September 24, 2019
He just aint making any impression in the game time his had.— Dont hassle the Hoff (@william_hoffler) September 24, 2019
Reiss Nelson is such a poor footballer.— Bossing (@snnonyeka) September 24, 2019
The hype was just so bad
Arsenal’s next game comes against Manchester United on Monday, and it remains to be seen whether Emery will include Nelson in his line-up.
