Kim Kardashian only filmed one player during Arsenal's penalty shoot-out with Sporting CP

Kim Kardashian only had eyes for one player during Arsenal's penalty shoot-out defeat to Sporting CP.
The Gunners were knocked out of the Europa League at the round of 16 stage on spot-kicks after a 3-3 aggregate draw, with Gabriel Martinelli the only player to miss after seeing his effort saved by Antonio Adan.
The second leg saw Pedro Goncalves cancel out Granit Xhaka's opener with a stunning chip from the near halfway line for one of the goals of the season.
Goncalves then trolled Xhaka after the game by imitating his new celebration, a request from his young daughter.
But a huge talking point was the surprise appearance of reality star and influencer Kim K, who sent the internet into meltdown after turning up to watch some Thursday night Europa League football.
It was even more shocking than Ousmane Dembele spending his Wednesday night watching Sunderland vs Sheffield United a the Stadium of Light.
The 42-year-old posted a series of snaps on her Instagram, having brought son Saint West to the Emirates. Saint was wearing his Arsenal home kit, with the name of women's star Katie McCabe on the back.
And Kardashian displayed her fandom for England star Bukayo Saka, filming his clinical penalty in the shoot-out and cheering as she did.
It was the only penalty she filmed, with cameras capturing the media personality in the stands snapping away and posting for 348 million Instagram followers to see.
Both Logan Paul and KSI were as stunned as anyone after Kardashian uploaded a picture of her in the hospitality section, with an Arsenal programme and bottles of Prime in shot.
The sports hydration drink is an official partner of Arsenal and though the company made $250 million in retail sales last year, it was a post from Kardashian which made Paul realise the mission had been completed.
"We made it @KimKardashian," he wrote on Twitter, accompanied by a screenshot.
It remains to be seen if Kardashian will be sticking around for Arsenal's visit of managerless Crystal Palace on Sunday.
