Ben White mocked the travelling away fans during Arsenal’s victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.
The Englishman has made the right-back position his own for Arsenal this season.
He was in the starting lineup yet again for the north London derby at the Emirates Stadium and played an integral role as Arsenal ran out 3-1 victors.
Thomas Partey’s 20th minute strike was cancelled out by Harry Kane’s penalty.
But second-half goals from Gabriel Jesus and Granit Xhaka gave the home side all three points.
White played 89 minutes before being substituted for Takehiro Tomyiasu.
The 24-year-old was made to leave the pitch at the nearest exit.
That meant he had to walk around the pitch and past the travelling Tottenham fans on his way to Arsenal’s bench.
The Spurs fans made their feelings to White known.
So, White decided to get some back as he made a 3-1 gesture with his fingers towards the Spurs fans.

The moment brings back memories of Theo Walcott.
The England forward, who spent 12 years at Arsenal from 2006-2018, infuriated Spurs fans in 2018.
Walcott had to be stretchered off and was taking some flak from Spurs fans. While he was being carried from the pitch, he made a 2-0 gesture with his fingers and had a beaming smile on his face.
