Arsenal fans spot Mikel Arteta’s reaction to Eddie Nketiah celebration vs Fulham

Arsenal needed a 97th minute goal from substitute Eddie Nketiah to rescue a point against Fulham on Sunday.

Josh Maja's spot kick handed Scott Parker's side the lead in the 59th minute and it looked as though it would be enough to earn Fulham a much-needed three points in their fight against relegation.

However, Nketiah poked home a late equaliser and ran off to celebrate with his Arsenal team-mates.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta, meanwhile, was spotted by fans urging his players to get back to the halfway line for the restart in the hope that there would be enough time to find a winner.

Reacting on social media, some supporters claimed that the players deciding to celebrate the equaliser showed that there is a "mentality problem" at the club.

"I far from the biggest fan of Arteta, but damn it if this group of players doesn't have massive issues, in both quality and mentality….", one wrote.

"I have to question the competitiveness of our squad", added a second.

"Like how badly some players want to win? That celebration reveals to me that some of the players really are going through the gears and don't have that competitive spirit.

"Arteta clearly tells to get on with it and they still celebrate? That's a poor reflection surely."

A third supporter simply wrote: "Mentality problem"

Speaking after the game, Arteta said he felt his side deserved to win the game, telling reporters: "Arsenal deserved three points, without a doubt.
