Ainsley Maitland-Niles responds brilliantly to Arsenal fans criticising him on Instagram


Ainsley Maitland-Niles has responded to criticism from Arsenal fans on social media in the best way possible following his side’s win over Huddersfield.

The youngster started in midfielder for the injury ravaged Gunners on Saturday and impressed Unai Emery enough to play the full ninety minutes.

Arsenal took an early lead through Alex Iwobi at the John Smith’s Stadium before Alexandre Lacazette doubled their advantage going into the break.

In fact, all of the youngster’s responses were polite and mature and have been roundly praised by other Arsenal fans who follow him on Instagram.
