One said: “From Championship to Europe’s elite within 5 years. It’s been quite a journey.”

And it was not lost on a few fans that Emery as well as Martinez are both ex-Gunners.

This message in particular might be painful to Arsenal fans: “So Unai Emery and Emi Martinez stopped Arsenal winning a title by taking 6 points off them? Sounds like karma to me.”
