Roma Troll Arsenal Fan After He Tells Them To Keep Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Never tweet about your team winning until the final whistle, that's the lesson one Arsenal fan found out in the harshest way possible at the weekend.
The Gunners led bottom of the table Watford 2-0 after just half an hour on Sunday afternoon. At the same time midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, on loan from Arsenal at Roma, was scoring for the Serie A side.
It led one Arsenal fan to let Roma know his side didn't need the Armenian anymore, oh how that backfired as Watford came back to draw 2-2. The Italian's responded with a wonderful 'story in four pictures.'

Unai Emery's side had taken the lead thanks to two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as Quique Sanchez Flores' return to Watford looked certain to start in defeat.
However the second half was a completely different as Arsenal allowed the home side to have 23 shots in 45 minutes, 31 in the whole game, and earn a point.
Tom Cleverley halved the deficit on 53 minutes before Roberto Pereyra's penalty, after David Luiz had brought him down in the 81st minute, gave the Hornets a share of the points, although they remain bottom of the table.
Mkhitaryan, who joined Arsenal as part of the deal that took Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, joined Roma on loan in September for a year, with no option or obligation to buy for the Serie A side.
He had yet to make an appearance for the Giallorossi but made his debut from the start against Sassuolo on Sunday in the league.
Paulo Fonseca's side had an even better start to their game then Arsenal had, leading 4-0 after 33 minutes, after goals from Bryan Cristante, Edin Dzeko, Justin Kluivert and Mkhitaryan.
Sassuolo also hit back with two second half goals but, unlike Watford, it was too much to come back from as the home side registered their first win of the season.
Arsenal picked up six points from their opening two games but have since only won two points in three games, against Liverpool, Spurs and Watford.
If they had reasons for dropping points against the former two then there's little excuse for failing to see out a two goal lead against Watford or for the performance in letting so many shots at their goal.
Unai Emery has a lot of questions to answer, as do David Luiz and Granit Xhaka after their performances, at least Mkhitaryan wouldn't be the answer to their problems anyway, lucky for Smokey.
