Arsenal recorded their seventh straight victory on Wednesday night in the Champions League with a domineering display over Ludogorets. 

This now puts the Gunners in an ideal position to qualify for the last 16 as they sit atop Group A with seven points, just ahead of French giants PSG on goal difference.

Mesut Ozil was the standout player for Arsene Wenger’s men during Wednesday’s proceedings however, after bagging his first hat-trick ever.

Following the game he posted a celebratory tweet in recognition of this achievement, which in turn received a bit of flack from the BT Sport team tasked with analysing the action.

Presenter Gary Lineker first turned to Richard Dunne for his opinion before moving on to Rio Ferdinand, and both former defenders, whilst discussing the post, agreed that tweets such as this are best left for after winning trophies and not for after ‘a group stage (game) in a competition’, as former Ireland international Dunne put it.

Whatever your position is on this type of behaviour from players, the Arsenal team will likely care very little as they toast to seven wins in a row and can now look forward to their next round of games full of confidence.
