After seeing a new-look Arsenal smash Everton 5-1 in a Premier League clash at the Emirates on Saturday night, pop star Rihanna declared herself a ‘Goooner’, delighting millions of Arsenal fans as she accepted a signed jersey from Shkodran Mustafi.
The 29-year-old Barbadian singer, had been in attendance for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final clash between Argentina and Germany (Which the Europeans won 1-0 thanks to a late Mario Gotze goal) and Die Mannschaft players Shkodran Mustafi and Mesut Ozil claimed the Good Girl Gone Bad hitmaker was their lucky charm as they posed for pictures after the game:
Buoyed by the January arrivals of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Arsene Wenger’s men ran riot against a hapless Toffees side on Saturday, going 4-0 up before 40 minutes.
Aaron Ramsey would score his third and Arsenal’s fifth after the interval and while Dominic Calvert-Lewin pulled one back for Sam Allardyce’s side, it was nothing more than a consolation.
While Ramsey was understandably showered with praise after registering his first-ever hat-trick , it was Mkhitaryan’s display that was equally impressive for the former Manchester United man notched a treble of assists on his first Arsenal start.
The Gunners, closed to within three points of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with their resounding win over the Merseysiders on Saturday and will look to overhaul their crosstown rivals as the race for the top-four in the Premier League heats up.
Spurs play their game in hand on Sunday, away to third-ranked Liverpool and could restore their six-point gap if they beat the Reds at Anfield.
