Arsenal fans think that Mikel Arteta is playing Joe Willock in the wrong position.

Arteta has been a big advocate of Willock since taking charge, and has played the Arsenal youngster fairly regularly.

Willock is yet to really step up and establish himself as a first-team regular for the Gunners though.


The youngster has shown signs that he is still adapting to senior football, with some of his performances not quite living up to expectations.

Willock struggled for Arsenal last night, during their 1-0 win over Olympiacos in the Europa League.

And Arsenal fans think that Arteta is playing Willock in the wrong position, as he is not a number 10.

Willock has now made 30 appearances for Arsenal across all competitions this term.

Arteta’s faith in the youngster shows just how highly he is rated, but the 20-year-old will need to start claiming more goals and assists if he is to keep his place.

Willock has scored four times this term across all competitions, and is still looking for his first Premier League goal.
