Arsenal fans are convinced that Arsene Wenger had plotted for Serge Gnabry to tear apart arch-rivals Tottenham in the Champions League.
Spurs allowed a 1-0 lead to slip through their fingers as Bayern Munich thrashed Mauricio Pochettino's men 7-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
And ex-Arsenal man Gnabry ruthlessly punished Spurs in the second half when he scored an incredible four times.
Former Arsenal manager Wenger had loaned out the 24-year-old German winger to West Brom and Werder Bremen before he was sold off to Bayern Munich in 2017.
But Gunners fans can only see the funny side of Wenger allowing Gnabry to leave and eventually return to London to put on a masterclass against Spurs.
Selling Serge Gnabry to Werder Bremen, just so he could thrive in a weaker league and gain a move to Bayern in order to play CL football regularly and score a four goals against Spurs to destroy their confidence?- AfcVIP⁴⁹ (@VipArsenal) October 1, 2019

Spurs took an early lead against the Bavarians after they sliced open their defence and Son Heung-min smashed the ball past Manuel Neuer.
But Joshua Kimmich stepped up minutes later and scored an incredible 25-yard screamer.
Robert Lewandowski handed his side a 2-1 lead going into half-time before Spurs were taken apart in the second half.
Gnabry scored a quick-fire brace to put the reigning German champions 4-1 up, only for Harry Kane to cut the deficit when he coolly fired home from the spot-kick.
But Gnabry was far from done as he scored again to complete his
hat-trick before Bayern Munich striker Lewandowski completed his brace.
The Bayern Munich winger hit the final nail in the coffin when he scored his fourth of the match and completed his side's 7-2 thrashing of Spurs.
Speaking to BT Sport after the match, Pochettino said that Bayern Munich were "very clinical" on the night.
He explained: "I don't need too much time to explain.
"We played 30 mins well, started well, pressing high. But we were unlucky that we conceded in the first minute of the half.
"They were very clinical. After we scored the penalty for two, we had chances to score the third. But from the 83rd and 88th minute we conceded three more goals.
"In football it can happen. Every single touch went in. We are very disappointed and very upset, but we have to stay together. I think we are strong in our mentality.
"Maybe you are bored about my speech but football is today, not yesterday. It is always [...] about the show. You have to do it today and tomorrow. It is not about experiences and what happened three months ago.
"We are disappointed. Every single touch from Bayern was clinical. They scored with every touch. It is tough to accept. You have to move on."
Bayern Munich have now moved three points clear at the top
of Group B, while Spurs are in third place and are level on points with Olympiacos.
5 - Tottenham's 2-7 defeat to Bayern Munich was the biggest ever margin of defeat by an English team at home in any European competition. Crushing. pic.twitter.com/LnUf8PKaWO- OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 1, 2019
