Brighton accused of digging into Ben White's social media after win over Arsenal

A social media post by Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday caused a stir among the fanbase of Premier League rivals Arsenal.

The Gunners and Seagulls, of course, met head to head yesterday afternoon, in a Premier League showdown at the Emirates.

The Brighton visitors, in the end, came out of the clash with an upset victory, making the most of an entirely lackluster performance by Mikel Arteta’s hosts to notch their first treble since early February.

And, as mentioned above, 24 hours after the clash, Brighton – or at least those in charge of the club’s social media accounts – still seem unwilling to let Arsenal live through Saturday’s result.

This comes with the South Coast outfit having a photo revealed, highlighting developments in the immediate aftermath of one of their two goals in North London.

In the background, two members of Graham Potter’s squad can be seen walking away to celebrate.

More notable, however, is the grounded Ben White figure, looking utterly desolate in the midst of what turned out to be a difficult week for everyone associated with Arsenal:

‘Disrespect’

So why has the image garnered so much attention?

Well, White, of course, departed from Brighton last summer, swapping Amex for Emirates in a big-money move that has been talked about.

In turn, many, particularly those of the Arsenal persuasion, have revealed their respective takes that the post was intended to be some sort of dig at the former Seagulls star, with only a taste of the resulting backlash on Twitter being shown below:
