ARSENAL fans have criticised head coach Unai Emery after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was replaced by Aaron Ramsey against Liverpool.
The Gunners were chasing the game after James Milner fired Liverpool in front following a Bernd Leno blunder.
Aubameyang, Arsenal’s top scorer this season, was surprisingly withdrawn for attacking midfielder Ramsey in the 72nd minute.
And Gooners on Twitter panned Emery for taking off their chief attacking threat.
“Emery out,” one fan fumed.
Another commented: “Wow that’s huge.”
A third said: “Imagine Wenger making such a sub.”
While another fan said: “Thats an… interesting choice subbing our top goalscorer who has a good chance of getting us back in the game for Ramsey who will most likely be gone in January.”
Emery’s change, however, appeared to do the trick as Arsenal began to dominate the play before Alexandre Lacazette levelled with a super strike.
Aubameyang did not appear to be a happy man when he was taken off, shaking his head in frustration.
Former Liverpool and Arsenal winger Jimmy Carter was shocked by Emery’s decision to replace the Gabon hotshot.
“That is a surprise because Aubameyang has been very bright,” Carter told the BBC.
“I don’t know if he has picked up a bit of a hamstring niggle but he didn’t look too happy coming off.
“He is the danger man for Arsenal up there with Lacazette.
“I know 1-0 down you need to have a look at some changes but I am surprised it’s Aubameyang to make way.”
The draw sees Arsenal remain fourth in the Premier League table.
Liverpool are still unbeaten and leapfrog Manchester City at the summit, who play tomorrow.
