Watford's Richarlison Is Trolling Arsenal On Social Media
As if suffering a last minute defeat to continue a poor start to the Premier League season wasn't bad enough for Arsenal, at the weekend, one of their chief tormentors from Saturday's game, Watford's Brazilian attacker Richarlison is now rubbing salt into the Gunners' wounds by trolling them on Twitter.
A Troy Deeney penalty and an injury time strike from former Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverly were enough to condemn Arsene Wenger's men to a third defeat of the season and it was Richarlison who earned the spot kick from which Deeney equalised.
Per Mertesacker had given Arsenal the lead, before Richarlison went down after a challenge from Spanish full-back Hector Bellerin.
Arsene Wenger fumed about the decision after the match, saying, "I think it is a scandalous decision, but what can we do about it? Nothing."
As if Wenger and Arsenal fans weren't angry enough about the decision and subsequent loss, Richarlison then took to social media to troll the North London club even further, retweeting a tweet that mentioned how a song he'd quoted was about Arsenal fans.

The Brazilian attacker has enjoyed an impressive start to life at Vicarage Road, scoring three times in his first seven appearances for the Hornets, who currently find themselves in fourth place in the Premier League, having won four and drawn three of their opening eight matches.
The incident involving Richarlison that led to the awarding of the penalty was referred to the FA for investigation, under the new rules which allow players to be retroactively punished if they are found guilty of simulation, but the Brazilian has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

We can only imagine what Arsene Wenger makes of that decision.
