Arsenal fans are obsessed with Gabriel Martinelli's cheeky bit of showboating during their 2-0 win in the north London derby.

There is no better fixture to be cheeky than a local derby and Martinelli definitely widened the smiles on Arsenal fan's faces as he wound rival fans up in the same instance.

It was thanks to a Hugo Lloris clanger that the Gunners took a 1-0 lead, with an Odegaard stunner doubling the away side's lead. Tottenham knocked on the door in the second half but a strong Aaron Ramsdale showing proved enough to keep a clean sheet.
