ARSENAL striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang showed his love for the club after shouting “London is f***ing red” on the pitch after their FA Cup triumph.

Footage from Wembley shows the striker, who’s two goals helped his side see of Chelsea to win the silverware, take part in a passionate end-of-game celebration.

And it will only excite Gunners fans further that their captain and world class striker will sign a new contract with the club.

Aubameyang lifted the corner flag after FA Cup final and was joined by Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette.

But he wasn’t too happy that it was blue – of course the colours of beaten opponents Chelsea.

So he covered it with Pepe’s Arsenal shirt, hoisted it in the air and screamed: “London is f***ing red”.

Aubameyang had adapted the usual “North London is red” dig at fierce rivals Spurs in light of beating fellow capital-dwellers Chelsea at Wembley.

Arsenal fans reacted with delight on seeing the celebration.

Oishik Gosh commented: “How can you not love this guy, gives it his everything, every game.”

Punda Amechoka wrote that he “loved it”, while Waran Mohanathasan added that “Auba is a Gunner forever!”

He might have been Arsenal’s match-winner in the game, but Aubameyang proved butter-fingers with the cup.

The 31-year-old managed to DROP the silverware as he carried it into the squad celebration shot on the pitch.

But there didn’t ook to be too much damage later on as he held it in his lap on the team coach home.

All Arsenal eyes will now switch to his contract situation – with his current deal expiring next summer.

SunSport has reported that Gunners chiefs will this week offer their FA Cup final match-winner fresh terms — but he wants a three-year deal worth £250,000 a week.

And his manager is desperate for him to stay.

After the 2-1 win against Chelsea, Mikel Arteta said: “Scoring is the most difficult thing in football. He makes it look simple — look at the second goal.

“We have always had incredible strikers at this club and Auba deserves to be named and compared with the big names.

“By winning trophies he will be closer to them and, hopefully, we can have him for longer.”

Tottenham’s Carabao Cup tie at Leyton Orient is at risk as MULTIPLE players test positive for covid

tottenhams carabao cup tie at leyton orient is at risk as multiple players test positive for covid

Tottenham‘s Carabao Cup clash with Leyton Orient could be in doubt after the League Two club announced that a number of first team players have tested positive for coronavirus

The O’s, who were set to face Premier League side Tottenham in the Carabao Cup third round on Tuesday, have closed their Breyer Group Stadium and training ground until further notice. 

Orient have said in an official statement that they have informed the EFL and Tottenham and will make an announcement on the status of Tuesday’s game shortly.

EFL rules for non-fulfilment of fixtures

5.1 A Club which is unable to fulfil its obligation to complete a Competition match in Round One to (and including) Round Four due to either:

5.1.1 that Club’s Player(s) having returned a positive CAT result and self-isolating in accordance with the action plan set out in the Return to Play/Return to Training Protocols resulting in the Club not having a sufficient number of Players to fulfil the fixture; or

5.1.2 any requirements or directions of the UK Government and/or by any public authority,

shall forfeit the fixture, pay the opposing Club’s expenses in accordance with Rule 5.8 and the opposing team shall receive a bye into the next round of the Competition.

‘Following our game on Saturday 19th September, Covid-19 testing was conducted on all of our first-team playing squad,’ the statement read.

‘Today (Monday 21st) we received formal confirmation which shows that a number of our first-team squad have tested positive for Covid-19.

‘Leyton Orient’s priority is the health and well-being of its players and staff. Those who have tested positive will now strictly follow government self-isolation guidelines.’

EFL clubs no longer have to mandatory test their players and staff for Covid-19 on a weekly basis like is still the case in the Premier League.

But ahead of the midweek tie with Spurs, Orient tested their squad and staff and have recorded ‘a number’ of positive results which now puts Tuesday’s game in doubt.

The statement continued: ‘We have also informed Mansfield Town, Plymouth Argyle and Oldham Athletic, our three most recent opponents, prior to the public release of this information.’

EFL rules state that a club which is unable to fulfil its obligation to play due to positive covid tests may have to forfeit the fixture, pay the opposing club’s expenses, who will receive a bye to the next round.

The breaking news comes after Tottenham announced that they would auction their signed match shirts from the game.

Proceeds from the auction were to go to the JE3 Foundation, set up in memory of former Orient manager Justin Edinburgh, who died of a heart attack last year. 

Edinburgh played for Spurs between 1990 and 2000, appearing 276 times for the club. He won the FA Cup and League Cup during his time at White Hart Lane.

The JE3 Foundation was set up by Edinburgh’s son Charlie aiming to support heart charities and to campaign for legislative change – Justin’s Law – to make it compulsory for all health, fitness and sports facilities to be equipped with a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD). 

Tottenham are scheduled to play at Brisbane Road tomorrow night as Jose Mourinho looks to win silverware for a club that has long missed out on the top prizes.

Spurs got their Premier League season up and running this weekend with a 5-2 win over Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium, with attacker Heung-min Son bagging four goals. 

Last season, the Premier League club crashed out of the competition to Colchester United, as Mauricio Pochettino’s spell at the club began to unravel.

But those purse bids have been pushed back to October 6. Yildirim was KO’d by Chris Eubank Jr back in 2017.

And the Mexican has plenty going on outside the ring – he is is suing promoter Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy and streaming service Dazn.

The 30-year-old signed an 11-fight £280million contract in 2018 – lauded as the richest in sport – but is alleging a breach just three fights in.

Despite the distractions, Canelo showed he is still keeping in shape ahead of his next fight.

He uploaded a shot of him in a boxing ring displaying his impressive abs, captioning it “just keep going”.

Canelo, 30, has not fought since moving up to light-heavyweight in November, where he knocked out Sergey Kovalev to take home the WBO belt.

The Athletic have obtained a copy of the civil complaint from Canelo filed in LA at the US district court for the central district of California.

The dispute centres around the payment of the £27m he is guaranteed per fight.

And in a statement given to The Athletic, Alvarez said: “I’m the pound-for-pound No1 in the world.

“I’m not scared of any opponent in the ring, and I’m not going to let failures of my broadcaster or promoters keep me out of the ring.

“I filed the lawsuit so I can get back to boxing and give my fans the show they deserve.”

The four-weight world champ’s lawsuit claims Golden Boy Promotions and Dazn have caused a minimum of £216m of damages.

In the 24-page document, Alvarez is suing for breach of contract, intentional and negligent interference with a contract, fraud and breach of fiduciary duty.
