One Arsenal faithful be could be heard saying "yes, that's their number one gone" while another among the crowd said "hamstring injury, ta da...wanker".

And the video clip has been condemned on social media as Arsenal supporters were quick to separate themselves from fans spotted on TV.

Pulisic opened scoring for the Stamford Bridge outfit but a Pierre-Emerich Aubameyang's brace turned the result in favour of the Gunners.

Legit.ng had also reported that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang led Arsenal to a 2-1 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final played at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, August 1.

The Gabonese cancelled out Christian Pulisic's early opener, to not on win a penalty, but also score it in a tense final.
