A stunning from Tomas Rosicky turned out to be enough to secure three points for Arsenal in the North London derby against Tottenham on Sunday.
And the Gunners’ celebrations after the final whistle were pretty unique as they went over to enjoy the moment with the travelling Arsenal faithful.
And, in what his to be a first in football, goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny took his phone out and took a selfie with Kieron Gibbs and Lukas Podolski.
And as the image went viral, fans on Twitter revelled in the Polish stopper’s ground breaking image, although Manchester City’s Micah Richards wasn’t impressed…

If that pathetic Arsenal 'selfie' celebration becomes a trend, football is dead to me

That Arsenal selfie should mean immediate relegation.

That Arsenal selfie is the worst thing I've seen this weekend and I've seen Steven Gerrard happy

And then pictures emerged of Lukas Podolski in the crowd as the celebrations continued on the White Hart Lane pitch. That’s certainly a way to celebrate a win over your biggest rivals…
That pic of Podolski in the Arsenal crowd is just perfect.

What a man Podolski is. What other player do you know that jumps into the crowd and starts singing with the supporters. Absolute hero.

If Podolski does end up leaving this summer, that picture of him in the crowd needs to be immortalized.

Podolski going into the crowd at the end annoys me because he is so fake. Wouldn't even stop to take a photo or sign an autograph

If pictures could trend, Podolski in the crowd would probably have crashed twitter by now.
