Following Chelsea’s defeat, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang likes a post from an Arsenal supporter making fun of him, but quickly unlikes it.
The game’s lone goal was scored by Gabriel Magalhes, although in reality, Auba’s new squad was thoroughly defeated by his former side and made little of a fightback. The poor performance angered the home supporters, who even started to boo after the final whistle.
When Aubameyang touched the ball during the actual game, there were roaring booing from the opposing fans’ section.

He unceremonious departure from the Emirates was unquestionably a major factor in this.
The Gabon international left the Gunners in January after a dispute with manager Mikel Arteta, and he was relieved of his captaincy as a result of several conduct problems.
Aubameyang added to the tense atmosphere by appearing in a contentious BT Sport match promo commercial that aired the week before the game.
He remarked in the advertisement, “Arsenal, nothing personal, and added I’m back. I’m blue. I’m ready.
Some Arsenal supporters used social media to celebrate after the outcome did not go in his favour.
Internet personality Troopz, who actually has a close friendship with the striker, was one of those who made fun of Aubameyang. As a result, there was no real malicious intent behind his jokes.
He shared a game image showing Gabriel cheering while Auba was stone-faced.
Troopz captioned the image: “Nothing personal.”
Remarkably, Aubameyang initially liked this post.
Not long later he unliked it, though it has not gone unnoticed.
