The 34-year-old couldn't contain his delight after Alexandre Lacazette fired the Gunners into a 3-2 lead, as he sprinted down the touchline.

Lacazette, Mateo Guendouzi, Sead Kolasinac and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all sprinted towards the corner flag to perform knee-slides in perfect harmony.

And the Swiss international looked to join in with his team-mates, but completely messed up his celebration.

The ex-Juventus ace went to do a knee slide of his own in his tracksuit, but instantly hit the deck, before being bundled by Aaron Ramsey and the rest of the jubilant squad.

While another quipped: "Lichtsteiner proving you can’t knee slide in a tracksuit."

Another commented: "Lichtsteiner failing the knee slide is the funniest thing I’ve seen today."

One simply stated: "Still creasing at Lichtsteiner eating the turf for Lacazette's goal celebration."

While the player himself took to social media following the sic-goal thriller, where he lauded his side's efforts.

Posting a picture of the squad, he said: "Amazing 4-2 in the derby! What a great team."

Lichtsteiner has been a peripheral figure under Unai Emery since joining in the summer, as he has played second fiddle to first choice right-back Hector Bellerin.

However he has still managed to rack up ten appearances for the Gunners – chalking up with one goal and assist.
