Arsenal fans not happy with Cedric
Arsenal got the victory against Leeds United but their fans were not entirely happy after the game.
Ghanaian eligible Nketiah who scored both goal for Arsenal received some praise but the bulk of the reaction after the game was about Portuguese defender Cédric Soares.
Soares is one of the right-backs at the club and has been given playing time by Mikel Arteta ahead of the injured Takehiro Tomiyasu.
According to Arsenal fans, Cedric is not good enough to play for the Gunners and his latest performance against Leeds United is an example why.
Arsenal fans are already counting the days until the transfer window is open so Cedric can be offloaded by the club.
