Fans flocked to Twitter this afternoon to poke fun at Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with some even stating that he’s worse than Newcastle manager Steve Bruce.
The Armenian didn’t have the best first half of his career against the Magpies today, with fans picking up on this and comparing him to Bruce after the Newcastle boss pulled off a stunning back-heel touch on the sidelines.
