Kai Havertz finally scores for Arsenal but fans think he's 'forgotten how to celebrate' as team-mates mob him | The Sun

KAI HAVERTZ finally got on the scoresheet for Arsenal today – but fans have joked that he "forgot" how to celebrate it.

The midfielder, who completed a £65million switch from Chelsea in June, scored Arsenal's third goal against Bournemouth from the penalty spot.

After being handed the ball by captain Martin Odegaard, he stepped up and sent Neto the wrong way before slotting it into the bottom-left corner.

However, before he got the chance to celebrate he was instantly surrounded by his teammates.

Gabriel Jesus, Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Gabriel Magalhaes and Odegaard all jumped in to congratulate the midfielder.

And Arsenal fans flocked to social media to react, with one person writing: "What a big moment for Havertz that is. Every single Arsenal player ran over to celebrate with him in front of the visiting fans. They are absolutely delighted."
