Arsenal fans have expressed their dismay on social media after Arsene Wenger decided to drop Olivier Giroud for the meeting with Bournemouth.
Giroud is still yet to start a game in the Premier League for the Gunners this season and has scored in his last two games in all competitions.
And many supporters have been left scratching their heads at the decision, taking to Twitter to vent their frustrations at Wenger's decision...
Wenger is just a stubborn goat. Giroud on the bench yet again. Elneny? It is well o— Don Pablo ||flakes (@Snowflakes504_) November 27, 2016
Wenger benched Giroud but he also benched Ramsey— Axel Foley (@PotterDSteffy) November 27, 2016
Hows Giroud on the bench again?— Adam (@MoaningGeordie) November 27, 2016
Giroud should start— Faridz Haikal (@FaridzPom) November 27, 2016
It feels like Giroud has to summon the devil in order to get a start... Does Sanchez have Wenger's family as hostages?? Give the guy a rest!— Omar Gad (@TheOmarGad) November 27, 2016
What does Giroud have to do to start a game!? The man is in fine form.— Lew (@OzilsLeftFoot27) November 27, 2016
FFS!!! WHY IS GIROUD NOT STARTING?!? Ugh! https://t.co/PRkS7tKOYd— DJ Tohbahd™ (@DJTOHBAHD) November 27, 2016
Why isn't Giroud playing? Mans on fire everything he touches goes in the net. Wenger really can't handle a squad can he— WozTheGooner (@wozthegooner) November 27, 2016
Fans of the north Londoners also gave their thoughts on Mathieu Debuchy being given the nod at right-back on Sunday.
The Frenchman hasn't started for the Gunners since November 2015 but was preferred to Carl Jenkinson, with Hector Bellerin still out through injury.
It's not that I had forgotten Debuchy was on Arsenal. It's that I had forgotten he was on earth.— Mike L. Goodman (@TheM_L_G) November 27, 2016
Debuchy aside, that's a quality lineup #COYG— Matty Phillips (@MatthewPhill87) November 27, 2016
Finally Debuchy gets a start I'm happy for him, time to prove people wrong— A.D.O.I.Z.A.🇳🇬 (@alexanderjulz) November 27, 2016
Where the hell is debuchy from?— Arsenal (@Geophm) November 27, 2016
