Arsenal fans boo Aubameyang

In the lead-up to the London derby, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had been the main topic of conversation, as he lined-up against his former side for the first time since departing north London in the last January transfer window.

Unsurprisingly, Arsenal fans booed the former Gunners skipper with his first touch of the ball after kick-off. There is certainly love lost between the two parties, which was highlighted by Aubameyang’s taunts towards Arsenal prior to the match starting.

Arsenal’s impressive 3-2 win over the Reds in October was, somewhat, overshadowed by the altercation in second-half additional time.

Play was briefly halted by referee Michael Oliver, allowing him to speak with Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp on the touchline amid an argument which intensified when Gabriel appeared to claim that something offensive was said.
