Arsenal boss Unai Emery gave Reiss Nelson a chance to impress last night.

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.

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.
