ARSENAL fans were left furious at Unai Emery for leaving one player out tonight, despite impressing in training.
Emery’s side need to overturn a 3-1 loss in the first leg to stand any chance of advancing to the quarter-final.
Defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos’ sending off put the north London side on a downward spiral.
And footage has emerged of him in training.
In the clip, the 21-year-old is running drills with the team.
Two players run towards each other, one with the ball before the man in possession has to beat the defender.
Mavropanos brings the ball forward against Aaron Ramsey.
The Greek star’s appearance comes as:
And the defender cooly shifts the ball to his right foot before moving away.
The youngster makes no mistakes on the way back either, finding his man with a pass.
This clip was shared on the club’s official Facebook channel.
But the Gunners faithful were left angry they would not see the Greek defender in action tonight as he was not named in the Europa League squad this season.
“Mavropanos needs to start,” one supporter said.
“He has been fit for some time now.”
Another commented: “So Mavropanos is training but not in the Europa League?”
While a third simply asked: “Why?”
This comes as the Gunners’ suggested line-up was revealed.
