Arsenal fans have claimed that Reiss Nelson is ‘overrated’ after his performance for them in the Europa League last night.

Nelson was selected to start for Arsenal against Standard Liege yesterday, with the 20-year-old given a chance to impress.

However, Nelson failed to catch the eye in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Standard.


The youngster struggled to really make a positive impact in an attacking sense.

And some Arsenal fans are now fearful that Nelson has been built up too much.

There was great excitement about Nelson before this season started, after he enjoyed such a productive loan with Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga last season.

Since returning to Arsenal, Nelson has failed to hit the ground running though, and is now only performing a bit-part role for the North London outfit.

Whether Arsenal would be open to loaning out Nelson in January now remains to be seen.
