Arsenal’s horrific form this season made worse by last week’s 2-0 loss to arch rivals Tottenham, has understandably drawn the wrath of Gooners, but it appears that there are more reasons to flog Arsene Wenger than there seem to be.
Critics of Wenger’s tactical decisions this season will get even more ammunition to seek the manager’s removal if an Arsenal fan’s claims are to be believed.
@1866_blog tweeted a picture of outcast Gunners forward Lucas Perez outside the Parliament where, when asked whether he is still injured, the Spaniard replied negatively and said he doesn’t even know why he hasn’t played.
Despite being sidelined since mid-March due to his injury, Perez has managed to score 8 goals in 21 appearances for Arsenal and former club Deportivo La Coruna this season.
The 28-year old ranks below the likes of Welbeck, Giroud and Sanchez in terms of preference but has proven to be significant for the team whenever accorded a chance to play.

Bizarrely, just met Lucas Perez outside Parliament. Asked if he was still injured and he said he wasn’t and didn’t know why he hasn’t played
