ARSENAL have been mocked into changing their Twitter background picture after a fan backlash.
On Sunday evening, the Gunners updated the image used as their background, leaving fans baffled.
Having just lost 2-1 to North London rivals Tottenham, Arsenal changed their picture to one of their own team losing at the home of their fierce rivals.
The picture stayed there for hours before they finally caved into fan pressure.
One Spurs supporter tweeted: "Nice background... too late to change it now."
Another said: "Arsenal's Twitter background, am I missing something?
"Or are they wishing NL was red?"
A third posted a theory, which read: "Arsenal admin probably lost a bet with a Spurs mate of his or something."
One Tottenham follower joked: "Rent free forever in their head..."
Arsenal eventually cottoned on to the abuse and changed their background picture to one of the inside of the Emirates.
Arsenal threw away a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 at Tottenham, thanks to a defensive howler and another set-piece goal.
The Gunners now lead the league in percentage of goals conceded from corners, free-kicks and penalties at 46 per cent.
Mikel Arteta later apologised to fans for the defeat and for the abject defensive performance.
