Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react after they discovered that in-form Bukayo Saka had been dropped from the starting XI to take on Everton.

The 18-year-old has shone in recent weeks for the Gunners, nut-megging Valentino Lazaro to provide an assist for Nicolas Pepe in the 4-0 win over Newcastle, while he supplied another great delivery for Alexandre Lacazette to score the only goal of the game against Olympiacos.

In total, the teenager had netted three goals while registering seven assists in all competitions this term before the Everton game, which is pretty impressive for such a young player.

However, Mikel Arteta saw fit to drop him when Everton travelled to the Emirates, replacing Saka with Sead Kolasinac.

Saka did actually end up on the pitch after just 18 minutes because of an injury to Kolasinac, and recorded yet another assist with a phenomenal cross onto the right foot of Eddie Nketiah.

Given how well the academy graduate has played recently, his exclusion from the XI naturally sparked a reaction from the Arsenal fans on Twitter.
