The Chilean scored against his former club on his first return to the Emirates, whilst Lukaku bagged two brilliant assists from his unexpected left-winger position.
Despite these facts, however, the man who managed to attract a majority of hatred from the London giants’ fan-base was none other than Jesse Lingard.
It wasn’t the goal that the Englishman scored, but the celebration that followed which infuriated the Arsenal supporters. The 26-year-old performed the ‘moonwalk’, inspired by Michael Jackson’s iconic dance step, right in front of the home crowd.
To rub salt in the wounds, the Manchester United academy graduate posted a picture of himself celebrating on Instagram, wherein the Emirates was tagged as ‘Dancefloor’ – a move of sheer disrespect, which the Red Devils’ fans absolutely loved.
And as if that wasn’t enough, a new video has now emerged, which shows Lingard performing the same move even outside the Emirates, as he was about to board the team coach. Watch it here:
His manager, however, was only concerned with his antics on the pitch. In fact, Solskjaer reserved special praise for Lingard in his post-match press conference, as he stated:
“Jesse’s a big game-player. He’s shown that for England, for us. He always pops up with goals, was it last year counter-attack goal against Arsenal?
“So Jesse is someone we never, never hesitate to put in a Man United team and he’s been brought through this system, he knows what this means, he knows the club, he knows this history, he knows all the counter-attacking goals we’ve scored against Arsenal. He knows everything about the club and he’s someone we’ll look after.”
