After the final whistle following Arsenal’s win over Everton on Sunday, there was a series of shots from Getty Images that caught my attention featuring Granit Xhaka, Shkodran Mustafi and Mikel Arteta.

They were both, it seems, taken at the same time by Catherin Ivill after the final whistle.

Xhaka is furious for some reason…

Then, Mikel Arteta appears and suddenly things change between the two of them…

I have absolutely no idea what has went on here, but it’s absolutely hilarious, whatever it is.
