Mark Goldbridge was left stunned as Arsenal scored late to seal a 3-2 win over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
Erik ten Hag’s men arrived at the Emirates Stadium looking to halt Arsenal’s Premier League charge and mount a title bid of their own.
In the 17th minute, Marcus Rashford fired United ahead with a stunning drive into the bottom corner but it was quickly cancelled out by Eddie Nketiah.
Arsenal went on to take the lead in the second half thanks to a Bukayo Saka stunner but were then pegged back by a Lisandro Martinez header.
However, Mikel Arteta’s men were not to be denied as Nkeitah scored his second of the match in the 90th minute to send the crowd wild.
Arsenal managed to hold on to the vital win to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League.
After the match, Goldbridge’s reaction to Nketiah’s late winner went viral as he was completely shell-shocked as the goal went in.
The famous YouTuber was heard saying: “It’d be heartbreaking if Arsenal were to win it, they’re on the attack here,” he then started banging his hands on the table as he watched Arsenal celebrate their late goal.
Goldbridge then took aim at his cat, he said: “You can sod off meowing as well you bloody Arsenal fan.”

During his post-match interview, Nketiah spoke about the heart-in-mouth moment when his goal went to a VAR check.
He said: “I saw Martinez next to me so I thought I was onside but when you see that purple (VAR) screen come up, your heart always goes a bit.
“You could see how much we wanted to win and how bad we wanted it for ourselves and our fans. We kept pushing and pushing and thankfully we found the goal.”
Arsenal will now take on Manchester City in the FA Cup before a Premier League clash against Everton on 4 February.
Can Arsenal keep going and win their first title since 2004? Only time will tell.
