Lerma’s strike inadvertently gave the Gunners the lead and one Arsenal fan even said Unai Emery should consider signing the midfielder!
Scoring an own goal is one of those moments where a player just wants the ground to open up and swallow him.
However, Jefferson Lerma’s strike – which inadvertently gave Arsenal the lead on their visit to Bournemouth – was somewhat mesmerising as it flew into the goal.
The Colombian diverted Sead Kolasinac’s cutback into his own net, giving Cherries keeper Asmir Begovic no chance!
Josh King levelled the scores just before the break, somewhat sparing his blushes, however.
Neverthless, when you score an own goal as spectacularly as that, people are going to have their say on Twitter!
And these Arsenal fans didn’t hesitate to do that, with one suggesting Gunners boss Unai Emery should sign Lerma, such was the beauty of the strike. Below you can see some of the best tweets from these Gooners.
