'This won't age well': Some Arsenal fans fuming at what Brighton have tweeted

Arsenal fans have responded after Brighton seemingly laid down the gauntlet on Twitter ahead of their Premier League clash this weekend.

The Gunners are hoping to make it five consecutive wins in all competitions when they head to the south coast on Saturday, 5:30pm kickoff.

Arsenal did the double over Brighton last season, winning 1-0 on their patch in December 2020 before beating them 2-0 at the Emirates in May.

Prior to the 2020-21 season, the Gunners had failed to beat the Seagulls in five games, of which three were defeats.

In June 2020, not long after the Premier League restarted, Arsenal and Brighton took part in a particularly dramatic encounter.

The Gunners lost 2-1 at the Amex, with Neal Maupay scoring his side’s winner in the fifth minute of injury time.

At the full-time whistle, Matteo Guendouzi grabbed Maupay by the throat, which sparked a skirmish between the teams.

Mikel Arteta ended up freezing the midfielder out of the squad, sending him out on loan to Hertha Berlin last season and Marseille this term.

If Brighton wanted a reaction from Arsenal fans ahead of this weekend’s clash, they’ve certainly got it.

Their Twitter account shared an image of Maupay’s pretend-crying goal celebration, captioned “Arsenal at home is next” alongside eye and “soon” emojis.

Which didn’t go down too well amongst some Arsenal fans:
