It was the final time that Klopp faced Arteta after his recent shock announcement that he will leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

Reds fans are no strangers to his passionate celebrations, with Klopp well-known for for pumping his fists at the Kop at Anfield after their victories.

And it seems as though it was a source of inspiration for Arteta as he did the same thing after Arsenal’s crucial win at the Emirates Stadium.

Gunners fans took to social media to delight in what he did, with one taking to X to say: “He’s absolutely taking the p*** and I love it.”

“The s***housery in this video is top class,” said a third with many laughing emojis.

A fourth also added: “Nice one, Mikel. The fans will be ready for this one next time.”

Rivals fans took issue to Arsenal’s celebrations, with Arteta wildly running down the touchline when Leandro Trossard scored their third goal of the night against Liverpool.

Gary Neville also said on Sky Sports that he believed there was a sense of immaturity, but Gunners legend Ian Wright had a passionate message for those who criticised their joy on social media.

Wright said: “The negativity towards my manager man, what has he done apart from celebrating a goal, celebrating his team, celebrating the team that’s truing to beat these juggernauts Liverpool and Man City?

“Because he’s celebrating, because Martin Odegaard is taking a picture with Stuart the photographer, a lifelong Gunners, this man has been supporting Arsenal since he was five or something ridiculous like that, taking a picture in front of the North Bank.

“What’s wrong with the captain doing that? It’s got nothing to do with the fact we beat Liverpool, that’s just an opportunity. Why is everybody trying to kill the joy? Don’t kill the joy, there’s so much of the season to go.

“As soon as Arsenal do anything, they just come and pile it on! It’s like we can’t have any joy, it’s like England at a World Cup or at the Euros. As soon as England start doing well everybody’s jumping on them, it’s the same thing with Arsenal.

“Don’t let them spoil the joy, keep doing what you’re doing, whatever is gonna be will be, do not kill the joy. My manager celebrating with passion like you do because that’s what it’s about man.

“People are expecting us to bottle it and lose these games and we’re going through it, we’re getting ourselves through injuries and everything, and the hatred is just so intense, just leave us alone man!

“You lot can take the p*** if it doesn’t happen like you normally do, leave us alone in the joy. Enjoy Arsenal fans! Enjoy our moments because that’s all this game is, moments, and we had one tonight, we beat the great Liverpool who are top of the league. Up the Gunners.”
