The woeful Francis Coquelin moment Vs Red Star angered Arsenal fans on Twitter

Crvena Zvezda v Arsenal FC - UEFA Europa League

Arsenal maintained their 100% record in the Europa League on Thursday night, beating Red Star Belgrade 1-0 thanks to a sublime winner from Olivier Giroud.

Yet to feature in the Premier League this season, Jack Wilshere was the standout performer and played a major role in Giroud's stunning 85th minute overhead kick.

The 25-year-old England international pulled the strings in midfield and his performances in the Europa League will certainly give Gareth Southgate food for thought.

Arsene Wenger was impressed by the injury-prone midfielder and promised Wilshere playing time in the Premier League.

"He [Wilshere] will get a chance in the Premier League, don't worry about that," Wenger said after the clash in Serbia. "I think at the moment it's going like that.

"He got a big kick in the first half on his ankle but he managed to get through the 90 minutes and games of that intensity will, of course, help him a lot."

One man who did not impress was Francis Coquelin.

The defensive midfielder is also yet to start a Premier League game this season but - despite some questionable Granit Xhaka performances - looks unlikely to break into the first team.

The 26-year-old Frenchman was given the lowest rating of 4/10 by football.london following Thursday night's narrow Europa League win.

Coquelin's abysmal first touch

Signed by Wenger as a teenager, Coquelin produced a first touch which gained traction amongst Arsenal fans on Twitter.

Receiving a simple pass from his teammate, the hard-tackling midfielder reminded Gooners why they've barely seen him around the first team this season.

Despite spending £30m on Xhaka in 2016, Arsenal are still yet to fill the gaping hole left by Patrick Vieira in 2005.

The Gunners haven't won a Premier League title since 2004 and many fans believe the club's lack of success is down to the failure to sign a world class defensive midfielder.

Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta, Emmanuel Frimpong, Denilson are just a few of the players who have tried to fill the void over the last decade.
