Social Media Sleuths: Fans Convinced Erling Haaland Watched Arsenal Game After Perfectly Timed Tweet
According to fans, Erling Haaland may have been watching Arsenal's exciting draw with Southampton as he posted a 'perfectly timed tweet'.
On Friday, Arsenal managed to secure a draw against Southampton at the Emirates thanks to the goals scored by Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka in the final moments of the game. This valuable point was earned by the Arsenal team.
After dropping points in their previous three league matches, both rival fans and some Arsenal supporters have accused the Gunners of 'bottling' their chances of winning the Premier League title.
Mikel Arteta's squad faces another tough challenge as they return to their league campaign on Wednesday, with a trip to the Etihad to play against Manchester City, who currently sit in second place.
When he faces Arsenal, Haaland, who has scored an astonishing 32 goals in the league this season, will aim to enhance his goal-scoring record.
He appears to be in high spirits as he shared on social media after Arsenal's 3-3 draw with Southampton.
He shared three pictures of himself in training, accompanied with the caption: "MOOD. STILL."

Man City are five points behind Arsenal, but have TWO games in hand as they meet next week.
Speaking after their last league victory over Leicester City, Guardiola said if his side lose the game then the title will be 'almost over'.
He said: "Like I said in the previous press conference, it is to win win win.
"They [Arsenal] have had an incredible run so far this season, I don't think they will drop many points and we have to be in there.
"It is important for us to arrive at the match by winning today and [it is] a final against them in the next Premier League game."
On facing Arsenal, the Spaniard added: "It is a final to play more finals. If we lose this game it will be almost over.
"We have to arrive in this position having the chance to be close to Arsenal. We want this opportunity knowing how difficult it will be but before that we have a Champions League semi-final chance and the FA Cup."
