The 27-year-old helped the Hammers to beat the North Londoners 0-2, but the game was at the Emirates rather than the national stadium. However, despite his brilliant performance, the Italy international seemed completely unaware of where he was.
The tweet has since been deleted, maybe when one of his teammates told the former Juventus man where he was!
My new favourite PL player. He hadn’t a clue where he was playing. That Newcastle lad in the tux is old news. pic.twitter.com/f5kiF81LFe

The defender can perhaps be forgiven for the misunderstanding, having only joined the East London outfit this summer. It could take a while for him to get his bearings in a new country, even if he was surely told where they were playing beforehand.
Once the centre-back realises where he is going, he will be hoping to help manager Slaven Bilic to continue his great start against Leicester City on Saturday. If they put in a performance similar to the one against the Gunners, they should find beating the Foxes no problem.
