GABRIEL MARTINELLI has left Arsenal fans in hysterics after celebrating his goal against Aston Villa BEFORE kicking the ball into the back of the net.
The Gunners came from behind TWICE at Villa Park on Saturday to run out 4-2 winners, steering their Premier League title challenge back on course.
Bukayo Saka cancelled out Ollie Watkins' opener, as did Oleksandr Zinchenko in the second half for Philippe Coutinho's.
Jorginho's strike hit off Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez to hand Arsenal a late added-time lead.
But Martinelli's goal was the cherry on top of an expert comeback for Arsenal.
The Brazilian joined Fabio Vieira on a counter attack from a corner and passed the ball into an empty net with Martinez left retreating back.

But before kicking the ball into the back of the net, Martinelli threw his arms out in celebration.
And his antics have left Arsenal fans in hysterics with some comparing it to Christ the Redeemer – the famous statue in Martinelli's native Brazil.
One said on Twitter with a picture of the statue and Martinelli: "spot the difference."
Another tweeted: "That is a legendary moment right there."
