'Offers more in every department': Some Arsenal fans want to see more of £75k-a-week man after last night

Arsenal may be through to the Europa League quarter-finals, but the Gunners players didn’t exactly cover themselves in glory last night.

Mikel Arteta’s charges stumbled into the next round following their 1-0 loss to Olympiacos at the Emirates, their 3-1 first-leg win just enough of a cushion to make it through.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

One of the issues some fans had was Hector Bellerin’s display, the Spaniard struggling to link up properly with Nicolas Pepe on the right.

While Bellerin wasn’t too bad defensively, you got a sense that Cedric Soares has done more than enough to make that right-back role his own.

The Portuguese has shown he links up much better with Pepe and, during and after the match, some Gunners fans thought he should be starting at RB instead of Bellerin.

Cedric has done well since joining Arsenal in January 2020, penning an initial loan deal before signing a £75,000-a-week contract in the summer.

The 29-year-old has made 26 competitive appearances for the Gunners to date.
