Watch: Twitter Erupts At Piss-Taking Scenes On Arsenal Bench After Second Goal

Watch: Twitter Erupts At Piss-Taking Scenes On Arsenal Bench After Second Goal
By Gavan Casey Updated

Danny Welbeck proved himself a normal human being when he celebrated his third goal versus his former club, a thunderous header putting Arsenal 2-0 up at the Emirates and all but ending Manchester United's top four chances.

José Mourinho's men were made to look very normal indeed, thanks in large part to the fact that they are a rank average team in spite of their astronomical cost.

Arsene Wenger's first Premier League victory over the Portuguese was overshadowed, however, by one of the most innocuous and yet potentially controversial moments of the season, and it arrived just a couple of metres to his right-hand-side.

Arsenal were hardly home and hosed with over half an hour remaining, but some of their backroom staff had frankly seen enough. As Sky Sports' Jamie Redknapp asked Gary Neville if Marcus Rashford could come on and make a difference for United, Neville was preoccupied with the goings-on on Arsenal's bench, responding:

Are they passing Maltesers on the bench behind?!?

And sure enough, there was an Arsenal staff member, showing those sat next to him the lighter way to eat chocolate.

And in case you're in any doubt, here's a close-up.

One could very easily argue that a group of people should be entitled to enjoy Maltesers at their own leisure, but naturally, Twitter was even more incredulous than Neville. And most seemed to be under the impression that the perpetrators were Arsenal players.

This, however, is sadly false.

Poor David Ospina, for example, was not the one dishing out the 'Tesers.

Others, meanwhile, saw Maltesers-gate as symptomatic of a wider problem within the English game.

In any case, it's a massive win for Maltesers, who were inadvertently (or otherwise, dn dn dnnn) trending on Twitter as a result.

Oh, and Arsenal also won 2-0.
