Everton and Arsenal would have seen their clash against each other as the perfect chance to kick-start their season.

Everton went into their match in 16th and having picked up just one point from their three Europa League matches.

As for Arsenal, their defeat to Watford last week saw them lose even more ground on Manchester City at the top of the table - although they still have a 100% record in Europe.

And while it was pulsating clash at Goodison Park with Arsenal running out 5-2 winners, it was the ballboy that went viral.

As Alexis Sanchez got ready to take a corner in the first-half, the ballboy saw his perfect opportunity.

He produced a little circle with his fingers. It was sly but very cheeky.

Watch: Everton ballboy becomes a hero

Take a look:

Twitter reacts

And there were plenty of people on Twitter that loved his little moment in the spotlight. Check out the reaction:

Some were confused

However, there were also some football fans that were left totally and utterly confused.

They obviously didn’t play this game at school!

The 'Circle Game'

Let us explain…

It’s called the ‘Cicle Game.’

A browse on the Urban Dictionary and this is their definition:

“A game for two or more players in which one player makes a circle with his/her hand (sort of like an ‘OK’ sign) below their waist and attempts to get the other player(s) to look at it. If at least one other player looks at the person's hand in while it's making this sign below the waist, the person who got the others to look at their hand gets to punch all of the players who saw the circle, generally in the arm/shoulder area.”


So there we go.

That cheeky ballboy gets to punch all of us in the arm because we looked at his circle…
