The Gunners ran out 5-0 winners over the non-league side to book a place in the FA Cup semi-finals, with club captain Mertesacker left watching the match from the sidelines.
The German World Cup winner was sitting just behind the dugout in his official club suit when he was offered a handshake by a young Gooner – who proceeded to mug Mertesacker right off.
Fortunately, the youngster had the presence of mind to record the entire encounter – and just look how angry Per gets!

He looks like he’s genuinely about to swing for the lad, eh?
Calm down, Per, it was only a joke, mate.
The one thing Arsenal have been lacking this season is a bit of fight and desire on the pitch, and based on this evidence, Mertesacker needs to be thrown back into the starting XI immediately.
