NUNO TAVARES put his recent troubles behind him to put Arsenal ahead against Manchester United after just two minutes.
And the left-back’s celebration after the goal showed he’s not exactly used to goals.
The 22-year-old moved to the corner and tried to slide his knee towards the corner flag.
But instead of gliding gracefully across the turf, Tavares landed on the deck with a faceplant.
The seedy celebration was picked up by BT Sport’s commentary team, with Glenn Hoddle joking: “I think he needs to work on his celebration!”
Meanwhile, Steve McManaman was just glad Tavares hadn’t injured himself by tangling his knees in the ground.
The former Liverpool man said: “Somebody’s going to get hurt in that very soon!”
Fans were also left in hysterics by Tavares’ embarrassing knee slide.
One joked: “Nuno tavares is one of the funniest player I have ever seen how happy I am for him.”
Meanwhile, another said: “Kneeslide failed harder than the United defence.”
