Arsenal Football Club created history on Saturday after becoming the first club in footballing history to be bantered by a pornstar. Mia Khalifa, who was in attendance to support West Ham in its match against Arsenal, called out young Arsenal player Matteo Guendouzi for falling on the pitch one too many times. Arsenal lost the game with the scoreline 0-1 in favour of the Hammers. In support of her favourite team, Khalifa had also posted her photos on Instagram wearing West Ham shirt.
Khalifa was not very amused by Guendouzi’s antics on the field and posted the following tweet calling him out for diving in a dramatic fashion.
Warning: Graphic language in the tweet.

Football Twitter, which has been having much fun at the expense of Arsenal for the past decade and more, broke into peals of laughter after Arsenal traversed a path hitherto uncharted in the course of footballing history.

Arsenal’s form, which seemed to have turned around after the sacking of club legend Arsene Wenger, returned to its usual state of affairs in December. The team’s fate is such that even after going on an unbeaten run that stretched over 20 games, they could find themselves on level points with Manchester United who made their worst start to the season after 17 games in 28 years under Jose Mourinho should the latter manage to win their game against Tottenham Hotspurs later in the day.
Arsenal now find themselves 6 points adrift of Chelsea in 4th spot.
