Arsenal’s bench celebrate ending Man United’s unbeaten streak by munching Malteasers during the game

Find out how many Dream Team points each player scored during Arsenal's win over Man United at the Emirates

Modern football, for all its quality, drama and excitement, is occasionally pretty s**t.

This afternoon, Arsene Wenger recorded his fist league win over long-time adversary Jose Mourinho as Arsenal beat Man United 2-0 at the Emirates.

In doing so, the Gunners also ended United’s 25-game unbeaten streak in the league.

How did the Arsenal’s bench react to such a win?

By whipping out the Malteasers of course…

Now while we’ve got nothing against Malteasers (easily top five chocolate-based snacks) it hardly seemed an appropriate accompaniment for a Premier League clash between two of the biggest clubs in the world.

Sky Sports commentator Gary Neville was appalled.

You could hear the disgust in his voice as he asked: “Are they passing Malteasers around on the bench?”

Yes, Gary, yes they were.

Imagine that in the days of Roy Keane v Patrick Vieira.

ARSENAL: Cech 8, Holding 8, Koscielny 7, Monreal 5, Oxlade-Chamberlain 12, Gibbs 8, Ramsey 3, Xhaka 8, Ozil 3, Sanchez 0, Welbeck 8.
