Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck has incurred the wrath of Twitter after theatrically going down in the box to win a penalty against AC Milan on Thursday Night.

The England international levelled the scoring when he converted the resulting spot kick, giving Arsenal a strong advantage after Hakan Calhanoglu’s opener had threatened to bring the visitors back into contention. 

However, even some Gunners fans appeared to be disappointed with the player’s conning of the referee and took to the social media outlet to condemn him.
