​Arsenal fans loved Martin Odegaard nutmegging Raphael Varane during their big win over Manchester United on Saturday.​

The Gunners won their Emirates clash 3-1, with Nuno Tavares, Bukayo Saka and Granit Xhaka all getting on the score-sheet. 

Odegaard didn't directly contribute to any of his side's goals, but he got Arsenal Twitter excited after a moment of magic in the second half.

The former Real Madrid starlet destroyed Varane with an outrageous piece of skill. 

He nutmegged the Frenchman in a sequence that sent social media wild. 

One Twitter user wrote: "Odegaard turned him from champions league Varane to Conference League Varane."​

A second tweeted: "Odegaard just sent Varane back to Madrid there."​

A third joked: "Odegaard sent Varane back to the trenches. He respectfully jogged back to this duty post."



Varane endured a difficult outing at Arsenal as he was at fault for the first goal

​He missed his clearance, with Alex Telles also fluffing his lines - with Tavares eventually tapping home after David De Gea had saved Saka's effort. 

Varane has failed to make a major impact at the back since joining the Old Trafford club. 

His campaign has been severely hampered by injuries, with the 28-year-old recording just 19 league appearances. 

And the player dubbed as Mr. Champions League could find himself not playing in the competition next season. 

Man United remain in sixth place following their defeat against Mikel Arteta's team. 

They're six points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal having played a game more than their rivals.
