Arsenal man now hits back at Brentford player with six-word tweet after 3-0 win today
The Gunners put in an excellent display at the Gtech Community Stadium this afternoon as they bounced back from a disappointing loss to Manchester United two weeks ago.
Arteta’s men ran out 3-0 winners today and thoroughly deserved the comfortable victory.
But it was a different story in the first game of the Premier League last season.
In what was Brentford’s first game in England’s top flight, the Bees beat Arteta’s side 2-0.
And Ivan Toney tweeted after the game: “Nice kick about with the boys.”
Now Gabriel has returned the favour after a commanding Arsenal win today.
Gabriel hits back at Ivan Toney with six-word tweet
The Brazilian defender took to Twitter after the game and wrote an almost identical tweet to that of Toney’s last year.
It reads: “Nice kick about with the boys.”
The Arsenal squad were clearly annoyed by Toney’s tweet from last season. Arteta even showed it to his players when the teams faced off again last season, as seen in the All or Nothing series.
But the Gunners are in a much better place this season as they sit top of the Premier League after seven games.
Last season, Arteta’s men lost their first three fixtures without scoring a single goal.
And it seems that Gabriel was keen to remind Toney about his tweet last year.
Arsenal will not head into the international break sitting top of the Premier League table.
The Gunners will return to action on October 1 in what will be a huge clash against their bitter rivals Spurs.
Just a point separates the sides at this moment in time and both teams are looking in good shape in the early stages of the season.
