Arsenal managed to salvage a draw against PSG through a late goal by Alexis Sanchez.
Edinson Cavani’s goal after 44 seconds looked to be enough for PSG to get the job done, but Alexis Sanchez’s late goal meant Arsenal could come away with a point from the game.
Despite his goal, Cavani missed a number of chances and was heavily criticised. Arsene Wenger too was subject to heavy discussion on Twitter for his team selection.
Here’s how the game played out on Twitter:
Rested players against S’ton on Saturday & we’re resting them again today.
What exactly are we resting them for?
Coming of Jesus?#PSGvAFC

Wenger won’t ever win the champions league and I don’t think he will win another premiership title. #PSGvAFC

Shocking 1st half. Outplayed all over the pitch. #PSGvAFC

We have no options in front of the ball, yet we are reluctant to shoot from outside the box.
Set pieces are our best chance.#PSGvAFC

Edinson Cavani was given some slack for a dismal performance:

Granit Xhaka’s exclusion was not met with positivity by the fans.
These are the nights Xhaka probably signed for, instead he has to sit there and watch a brainless binman charge around midfield like a moron

Smart move from Wenger to rest Xhaka for the North London derby in November.

Xhaka rift with Wenger. Wenger wasn’t happy he ate Mars bar after training. Teaching him a lesson.

When I’m told Coquelin starts over Xhaka twice in 3 days pic.twitter.com/7iopYQ0na1

I thought Coquelin started vs Southampton to rest Xhaka. But seeing Xhaka on the bench again questions what’s going through Arsene’s head
