West Ham striker Andy Carroll has picked up the Goal of the Month award for January for his scissor-kick goal against Crystal Palace at the London Stadium.

The former Liverpool man beat Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud to the gong, after many thought the Frenchman’s scorpion kick against the same opposition was a dead-cert for the prize.

The news has been met with delight by those in claret and blue but not so in north London.

Arsenal fans have not taken the news lightly and have pounced straight onto social media to share their displeasure.

Many simply cannot understand the decision:

Some also feel that Carroll’s goal wasn’t actually all that special..

Many Arsenal fans are also claiming an agenda against the club…

It’s fair to say that, after the loss against Chelsea, this week has not been a good one for Gunners fans.
