Arsenal fans love Mikel Arteta’s passionate celebrations after incredible first-half

Arsenal fans have gone wild for Mikel Arteta’s celebrations after their side raced into a 3-0 first-half lead over Tottenham in the north London derby.

Goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka gave the Gunners a surprisingly big advantage at half-time over a stuttering Spurs side.

Manager Arteta, who has been under intense scrutiny early on in the season, could not hold back his emotions as he saw the goals fly in.

Smith Rowe’s opener prompted the Spanish boss to turn around and punch the air as he leapt up with joy and embraced one of his coaching staff.

Arteta then produced a carbon copy of that celebration when Aubameyang bagged the second, though this time it was delivered with a little bit more oomph.

By the time Saka netted the third he had thrown all caution to the wind and sprinted towards the Gunners fans in the Emirates stands, throwing his arm out like a veteran boxer.

Arsenal fans lapped up their manager’s celebrations as they revelled in their neighbours’ downfall.

Should managers show emotion more often? Let us know in the comments section.

One fan tweeted: “The Arteta celebrations after every single goal are brilliant!”

“Arteta’s celebration of all the three goals is LEGENDARY!!!! Those who never believed in him MUST apologise!,” another said.

A fellow Gooner added: “The celebration from Arteta is just priceless, you could see his passion and what he’s building here. Well done coach.”

“The best highlight of the first half was Arteta’s celebrations,” one supporter claimed. “It’s the passion for me.”

The relief of a manager who had previously been heavily tipped to soon be losing his job was clear to see.

Indeed, a poor result against their arch-rivals would have brought the pressure from earlier in the season flooding back.

Arteta had managed to ease some of the strain on his job prior to the weekend with three successive wins over Norwich, Burnley and AFC Wimbledon.
