PREMIER LEAGUE icon Dimitar Berbatov surprised a group of fans that left the Emirates Stadium before Arsenal's 3-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday.
The Gunners clinched an incredible last-gasp win over the Red Devils thanks to two late goals from Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus.
With the score locked at 1-1 in added time, Rice provided a breakthrough with a close-range strike at the back post following a corner.
Jesus then sealed the victory with a sensational solo goal in the final seconds.
However, some Arsenal fans missed the dramatic finale after leaving the Emirates Stadium early.
They received plenty of criticism from fans on social media.
