Arsenal fans have reacted in hysterics to Emiliano Martinez’s actions during Aston Villa’s 1-0 win at Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.
Villa recorded a deserved three points at Old Trafford, but it came with its added drama, including Bruno Fernandes blazing his penalty miles over the bar in stoppage-time.
It seems as though Martinez was asking Cristiano Ronaldo to take Man United’s penalty, and not Fernandes, which Arsenal fans found hilarious.
But added with that, the Villa keeper then taunted the Manchester United fans behind the goal after the penalty miss, with a little dance.
Martinez has previous of this because he did something not too dissimilar during the summer when Argentina won the Copa America.
Those antics came against Colombia and towards Everton defender Yerry Mina.
And once again, the £17 million player (BBC Sport) was at it yesterday and Arsenal fans liked what they saw from their former player.
It was a drama-filled game because Kortney Hause thought he had won the game for Villa with minutes left on the clock.
But in stoppage-time, he was punished after Mike Dean adjudged that he handled the ball.
Then Martinez assured that the feeling of deflation from Hause was full of bursting pride because he played a huge part in Fernandes putting his spot-kick into the top-tier.
Here is a selection of Arsenal fans reacting to Martinez’s actions yesterday:
