‘The main man now’ – Many Charlton fans react to Macauley Bonne’s verdict on Arsenal clash

Charlton Athletic striker Macauley Bonne has taken to Twitter to reflect on the friendly against Arsenal over the weekend, which has drawn an interesting reaction from fans of the south London club. 

With England’s top two divisions set to get back underway later this month, clubs have stepped up their preparations.

Charlton travelled to the Emirates to face Arsenal in a behind-closed-doors friendly on Saturday, with the Premier League side coming away with a comprehensive 6-0 victory.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave the hosts a 2-0 lead at the break before Eddie Nketiah’s second-half hat-trick and Dani Ceballos’ free-kick put the result well beyond any doubt.

It was not the scoreline that Lee Bowyer’s side will have been hoping for but it will have given many of his players some vital match fitness.

Among those is Bonne, who played 45 minutes at the Emirates, and looks set to be a more important figure after Lyle Taylor revealed he won’t be available when the Championship gets back underway.

The 24-year-old striker took to Twitter to reflect on the friendly against Arsenal and look ahead to the start of the season.

Bonne joined from Leyton Orient in the summer and has made an impressive start to life in the Championship.

The striker, who had never played above League Two ahead of the season, has scored eight goals and added two assists in his 24 appearances this term.

Were Richard Rufus' apps higher or lower than Chris Powell's?

He certainly appears to be a popular figure among the Valley faithful and many supporters were quick to send messages on encouragement following his latest post.
