As Arsenal fans, we’ve seen a lot of questionable things over the years. From signing the likes of Kim Kallstrom and Willian to seeing Mesut Ozil provide live commentary of a game on Twitter after he was left out of the squad, we’ve seen it all.
However, Villarreal may just have gone one step further with their social media activity this week. Unai Emery’s side face Arsenal in the second leg tomorrow, and they are doing everything they can to get themselves motivated.
Villarreal’s official Twitter handle posted a strange video today about the history between them and Arsenal. They highlight how Arsenal have got the better of them in 2006 and 2009, and seem to hint now that they are looking for revenge.
Well, we don’t really know. Have a look for yourself.
‘Let it be heard in London’ is Villarreal’s caption for that Tweet – we don’t really know why as they’re just reminding the world that Arsenal have beaten them twice in Europe in the past. Well, if it makes them happy, then sure.
After our performance in Spain last week, we can’t really say much apart from bringing up our results against them from over a decade ago. They were the better side last week and we have our backs against the wall now.
Mikel Arteta will have to get everything right to get a positive result tomorrow. Villarreal have their motivational videos ready to get them in the mood – hopefully, the same video fires our players up as well.
It certainly annoyed a few Arsenal supporters on social media.
