Arsenal fans love what Matteo Guendouzi did to Nani in Sporting clash

Unai Emery appears to forged a real spirit at Arsenal after moving to the Emirates in the summer.

The fans "have their Arsenal back" and are right behind the team, while the players are playing for each other and have their backs at all times on the pitch.

The Gunners are on an 11 game winning streak having seen off West Ham , Cardiff , Newcastle , Vorskla, Everton , Brentford, Watford , Qarabag, Fulham , Leicester and Sporting Lisbon.

Things haven’t been better since around 2006 in north London.

The team spirit is apparently at its strongest and most potent when a former Manchester United player does one of the wolf pack wrong – as showcased during the Gunners Europa League victory over Sporting on Thursday.

The ex-Red Devil in question is historic Gunner winder-upper Nani – who at the age of 31 still gave make shift left back Granit Xhaka a torrid time.

On this occasion the Portuguese was on the defensive and making a hefty tackle on Lucas Torreira during the second half at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.


Nani then appeared to grab Torreira’s ear and neck to anger Matteo Guendouzi.

Without missing a beat Torreira’s midfield partner Guendouzi arrived on the scene to stick up for the Uruguayan.

And the incident was not missed by Gunners fans on social media who praised the Frenchman for his team ethic, as originally reported by Football.London.

Stephen added: "How well has guendouzi settled in to the team?! Rarely wastes a pass, looks super confortable on the ball and last night when nani took a hold of torreira by the neck guendouzi nailed him seconds after. Proof that whilst young he can graft like a man and has his team mates back."
