Serves Him Right: Arsenal Fans React After Arsenal Star Did This To Humiliate Former Player

After failing to beat Astonvilla twice the previous season, Arsenal finally beat them at the third time of asking. 

Arsenal, in fact, were brilliant from the start of the game, with their continuous high pressing causing issues for Astonvilla. 

As a result, Villa were unable to move out of their own half in the first half, which was dominated by Arsenal, who scored two goals. 

Arsenal's first goal came from a corner, and Thomas Partey became the first gunner to score against former Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez

Martinez is well-known for playing mind games with opposing teams when penalties are awarded. 

As a result, he almost got into a brawl with Laccazete against Arsenal as he sought to save Arsenal's penalty with mind tricks. 

When Aubameyang took the penalty, though, the goalkeeper's mind games appeared to succeed for a split second, as he was able to save the shot. 

Martinez, though, returned the ball to Aubameyang, who scored an easy rebound instead of sending the ball behind for a corner. 

Martinez collapsed to the ground in shock as Aubameyang sprinted to join his teammates in celebration. 

Martinez was in tears after the game, and Aubameyang sought to console the former goalie during his post-match interview. Here are some Arsenal fans' reactions.
