Dad David would’ve been celebrating in the 17th minute when United hitman Marcus Rashford broke the deadlock with a stunning solo strike.

It wasn’t long, however, before Romeo was celebrating as Eddie Nketiah levelled the scores with a header seven minutes later.

Bukayo Saka fired the Gunners into the lead in the 53rd minute with a superb strike from distance.

But their lead lasted just six minutes as a stooping header from Lisandro Martinez put United back on level terms.

Romeo, however, had the last laugh as Nketiah struck in the 90th minute to extend the Gunners’ lead at the top of the table to five points.

And he trolled his dad by posting a selfie of them outside the Emirates after the match – in which he celebrated as the Red Devils legend looked glum.

He wrote on Instagram: “Sleep tight dad @davidbeckham.”

David’s allegiances to Manchester United didn’t stop proud Arsenal fan Romeo from sporting Gunners colours as they watched the game.


The midfielder wore a red and white Arsenal scarf as his dad watched pensively on.

Footy fans were quick to comment, with one saying: “I love that Romeo Beckham has his Arsenal scarf on.”

Another said: “Romeo Beckham being an Arsenal fan is so hilarious, your dad is a whole United legend.

“I’m sorry but you failed as a father.”

And another said: “Romeo Beckham rocking that red and white scarf beside Beckham lol.”

One remarked: “The face Romeo Beckham did was awesome.

“His father is a United legend and he supports Arsenal hahaha.”

Another chimed in: “LOL David Beckham and Romeo Beckham. Romeo with Arsenal scarf on.”
