And to promote the game, they used a stock image of Nurnberg fans holding up scarfs – but one of them contained a graphic cartoon of a sexual act.

Arsenal quickly deleted the post after fans started pointing out the mistake.

One fan responded, saying: “Nice scarf chosen for this pic.”

Another tweeted in response to Arsenal’s change of photo: “Hahaha Why change picture???”

The friendly, streamed live on Arsenal’s website for £5.99, wasn’t short of action with eight goals flying in.

Mikel Arteta’s men came out 5-3 winners with new signing Gabriel Jesus bagging a brace.

However, Arsenal’s Twitter gaffe wasn’t the only mistake made in the build-up to the game or during it.

Summer signing Matt Turner had an absolute howler.


The USA international failed to impress for his boyhood side after conceding twice in the opening 45 minutes.

Nurnberg took the lead in the 24th minute through Johannes Geis, with his effort from range cannoning off the underside of the bar.

Though replays showed Turner should have done better to keep out the swerving strike as it was right down the middle of the goal.

Just five minutes later, Arsenal conceded again as Kwadwo Duah raced through one-on-one before rifling a shot low into the bottom left corner.
