6 GIFs That Perfectly Sum Up How Arsenal Fans Feel Today
One game into the Mkhitaryan-Aubameyang Era, and Arsenal fans have declared victory. The New Arsenal is here.
It was a good game. A great game, in fact. Aaron Ramsey scored the first hat-trick of his career. Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored the first hat-trick of assists of this season – or, in fact, any Premier League season since 2013. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his first goal for Arsenal, even if it was a little suspect.
The final score of 5-1 reflected well Arsenal's dominance over Everton. Hell, even Rihanna was on-hand to commemorate what surely must be the end of the Banter Era and the beginning of a new era at Arsenal. Right?
