'Calm down, so dangerous': Some Arsenal fans react to photo coming from London Colney
Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react after a photo of Gabriel Magalhães and Alexandre Lacazette at London Colney emerged.
What’s the story?
Well, the photo shows Gabriel climbing all over Lacazette ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Burnley today.
The Brazilian can be seen very high off the ground, with his hand pushing down on the Frenchman’s neck.

One fan actually criticised Lacazette for his involvement in the duel.
They said they ‘hate’ seeing the 30-year-old lean back into his opponents, as it endangers them by ensuring they fall over him.
Another told the pair to ‘calm down’ after seeing the image.
In truth, it’s good to see the two getting to grips with each other at London Colney – Burnley are arguably the most physical side in the Premier League.
Gabriel and Ben White will be vital for Arsenal
We all know how Sean Dyche gets his Burnley side to play.
Chris Wood will surely be aiming to bully Gabriel and Ben White later today, and get his name on the scoresheet too.
Even just allowing the Burnley No.9 to win flick-ons for his teammates isn’t good enough for Gabriel and White.
They must bring their A-game to ensure they’re not bullied by the towering New Zealand international, who has roughed the Gunners up on a few occasions.
Additionally, set-pieces will be a danger for Arsenal.
Again, White and Gabriel must be switched on and not allow Burnley to win the physical battle, as they nearly always do.
For now, let’s see what the Arsenal fans on Twitter have been saying about the photo ahead of kick-off…

Is Laca ok?— IamAlbert (@albertini220) September 17, 2021
I don't think he can piggy back on Laca for 90 mins— Alam (@AlamManji) September 18, 2021
I actually hate when he does this, it’s like his special move. He’ll lean into a defender as if he’s going to challenge for a header and then bend over so they fall over him. So dangerous man can’t believe he’s doing it to our own players as well— Callum (@WilshereTouch) September 17, 2021
Our defence isn’t getting bullied with him at the back 💪 https://t.co/J5EkHMvT8S— AFC Moustache (@AfcMoustache) September 18, 2021
Wood is twice the size of laca— 🐫 #KroenkeOut (@Artsenalszn) September 17, 2021
