Ivan Toney has jokingly labelled Arsenal players as "a bit cringey" for repeatedly using his gloating social media post as motivation to beat Brentford.

The 26-year-old described Brentford's 2-0 win over Arsenal on the opening day of last season as a "nice kickabout with the boys" on Twitter.

The recent Amazon All or Nothing documentary on Arsenal revealed that boss Mikel Arteta showed that tweet to his players to inspire them before the reverse fixture in February, a game they won 2-1.

After that game, striker Alexandre Lacazette tweeted the exact same words in response, before Emile Smith Rowe added "fun session with the boys" in reply.

And following Arsenal's 3-0 win at the Gtech Community Stadium on Sunday -- a match which ended with the away supporters chanting "Ivan Toney, a stroll in the park" -- defender Gabriel mimicked Toney with the same tweet as his original.
