ARSENAL fans have gone into meltdown on Twitter due to £52million Alexandre Lacazette being left out of the starting line-up against Manchester City.
The French striker is the Gunners’ record signing, and was omitted from the XI which started at Anfield — and were hammered 4-0.

Arsene Wenger has strangely made the same decision for the daunting trip to the Etihad.
City have dropped just just two points all season, and the Frenchman has picked a relatively defensive side.
Aaron Ramsey, Francis Coquelin and Granit Xhaka all start.
Alexis Sanchez is the lone frontman instead of Lacazette with Alex Iwobi in behind — alongside Mesut Ozil — in a role the Chilean could have occupied instead.
Imagine finally signing a world class striker in Alexandre Lacazette, and then not start him away to Liverpool or City. Incredible.

Bad choice putting Lacazette on the bench, Wengker.

Maybe Lacazette doesn’t play well during full moons? pic.twitter.com/bNATrPkRqt

Does Wenger even rate Lacazette? He hasn’t even finished 90mins for us yet

Buy Lacazette for £50m then bench him in big games. Must be frustrating to have Wenger as your manager

Where’s Lacazette?????? Wenger’s dropped our most expensive player for the biggest game of the season? Ridiculous. https://t.co/BHotRVwkYP
