Arsenal fans love social media – be it because their team have won or because their side have lost, and after a win over AC Milan and then seeing their side beat Watford, they were loving it.
There were so many talking points – the fact Petr Cech got his 200th goal for the side, the trolling they could do to Troy Deeney now after his cojones comments following their first meeting this season, and their January signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan managing to outdo Alexis Sanchez’s record at Manchester United since the pair moved to their new clubs at the turn of the year.
The flocked to Twitter, and made it very clear how happy they were, with a fair amount of mocking in Alexis’ direction to boot.
It’s been a good week for the Gunners, and manager Arsene Wenger is certainly looking more secure in his job than he was a couple of weeks ago, with rumours he could even lose his job before the end of the season doing the rounds.
Now, it seems he will at least last until May, if not longer – and it seems he’s certainly getting the best out of Mkhitaryan.
Best of Twitter

In fact, the player is much better at Arsenal…
Mkhitaryan now has 6 assists and 2 goals in 8 starts but United fans still believe he’s shite because he had a bad spell at their club. Form is temporary, class is permanent, lads.
