Ivan Toney has been ruthlessly mocked by Gabriel Magalhaes following Arsenal's comfortable win over Brentford on Sunday.
Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League by beating Brentford 3-0 at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Goals from William Saliba, Gabriel Jesus and Fabio Vieira gave the Gunners a sixth win in seven league matches this season.
It's a far cry from last season's result, where Brentford stunned Arsenal 2-0 on the opening day of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.
After the Bees shocked Arsenal, Toney poked fun at the North London outfit with a savage dig on Twitter.
He tweeted: "Nice kick about with the boys. @Brentford."
Over a year on from the time of that tweet, Gabriel has used the post against Toney - posting the same message following his side's big win on Sunday.
On Twitter, he wrote: "Nice kick about with the boys. @Arsenal."
It's not the first time an Arsenal player has used Toney's tweet against him.
After Arsenal beat Brentford at home last season, then-player Alexandre Lacazette shared the same message.
And before that game, Mikel Arteta used Toney's tweet to motivate his team ahead of the fixture.
Speaking in the documentary 'All or Nothing: Arsenal', the Spaniard said: "Before I go, because it’s still in my stomach and I have managed to keep it for four months, five months, six months.
"This is Toney after the game when we played at Brentford. You know what he did? You know his tweet? Nice kick about with the boys this afternoon.
"So today they play in our house, guys there is only one team on that f**king pitch - and it’s us! Only one team, it’s like they don’t play football.
"We take that f**king ball, we take the game, we go for it and let’s f**king win this game!"
