Brazilian centre-back Gabriel scored the Gunners’ second as they put newly promoted Fulham to the sword at Craven Cottage.

A picture emerged on Twitter of Gabriel’s socks showing the adidas logo instead of the club-associated cannon, like the rest of his team-mates.
A lot of people were very pretty confused, it’s fair to say, as they pointed out the misdemeanour on social media.

“Gabriel managed to put his socks on back to front? How is that even possible?” quizzed a third.

But one user managed to work out what had happened, pointing out that footballer’s cut their socks at the ankle, so it was an easy mistake to make.
They explained: “They cut the socks off above the ankles so it just covers the shin and above, and use socks with grip on it(the white part) separately.”
