Willian risked the wrath of the Arsenal fans as he appeared to ‘like’ Chelsea’s Instagram post celebrating their 2-0 win over the Gunners.
Romelu Lukaku and Reece James scored at the Emirates to make it two defeats from two at the start of the season for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Frustrations were evident as boos rang around the stadium at half-time and full-time from angry supporters in north London.
‘Arteta Out’ was also trending on social media after the game with the fans clearly unhappy at the direction the club is going in at the moment.
Brazilian winger Willian, who of course used to play for the Blues, is likely to add to that frustration as he appeared to like their rivals’ post on social media after the game.
The caption on the picture read: “Imagine not being Chelsea.”
Willian, 32, spent seven seasons at Stamford Bridge before joining Arsenal at the start of last season on a free transfer.
The Gunners signed him to a huge three-year contract worth around £250,000-a-week.
He had a poor first season, scoring just one goal, and the club have been trying to offload him all summer.
Arsenal are still hopeful of finding a solution to his situation before the transfer window slams shut next week.
Willian has been unavailable for Mikel Arteta in the first two games of the season after he tested positive for coronavirus.
