Struggling Arsenal have been ruthlessly mocked on social media by Russian Premier League side Spartak Moscow as they become a laughing stock around Europe.
The Gunners are winless and goalless after their opening two games of the Premier League season, having been defeated by Brentford and Chelsea in successive weeks.
That poor start to the new campaign has come despite Arsenal being the highest spenders in the summer transfer window in the top-flight so far.
Under-fire boss Mikel Arteta has brought in five new players already, having signed Aaron Ramsdale, Martin Odegaard, Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares.

The pressure has ramped up on Arteta following the opening two matches, with Chelsea running out comfortable winners at the Emirates Stadium.
First-half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Reece James ultimately doomed the Gunners to defeat, with Arteta’s side now second bottom in the Premier League.
Their struggles have not gone unnoticed around Europe, with Russian giants Spartak taking the opportunity to delight in Arsenal’s misfortune.

Where will Arsenal finish in the Premier League this season? Comment below.
Ezequiel Ponce opened the scoring for Spartak with 14 minutes remaining in the match at the Tsentral'nyy Stadion Arsenal.
But Daniil Khlusevich equalised for the hosts with eight minutes remaining to claim a point for Dmytro Parfenov’s men.
While that result leaves them mid-table in the Russian top-flight, Spartak have made a better start than the Gunners.
And following Chelsea’s win Spartak took the opportunity to ruthlessly mock Arteta’s struggling side.
