Arsene Wenger was all smiles after Arsenal thrashed Newcastle 7-3 on Saturday evening, but the Gunners boss was made to look somewhat foolish after a problem with his zip during the entertaining encounter.

Wenger's unnecessarily long bench coat has attracted plenty of ridicule this season, and the apparently complicated zip mechanism had got the Frenchman flustered at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.

The Arsenal manager was caught by TV cameras looking perplexed as he attempted to fasten his coat - eventually achieving his goal after a few seconds of struggling.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have climbed to fifth in the Premier League after their defeat of Newcastle, during which Theo Walcott netted a hat-trick for the Gunners.
