But tonight Jenkinson, who spent time on loan at Birmingham last season, gets a chance to impress boss Unai Emery.

But many Gunners fans on social media were shocked that the usual left-back was given a rare start.

James Clements shared a gif of an open-mouthed Joey from hit TV show Friends – clearly emphasising his shock.

Mustafa Maraqa just seemed mad that he was selected, writing: “What tf is Jenkinson doing on the starting line-up?”

Ndumiso Khwela wrote that he is “still living the dream”.

And Chinonso Charles was seemingly pleased with the selection, writing: “Great line-up! Happy to see Jenkinson again”.

Upkar Kesar posted that Jenkinson was “immortal”.

But Dwayne Opare is clearly not a fan, as he wrote: “I hope all this game time Jenkinson is getting is to make it easier to get him outta of the club come January.”
