Ashley Cole pokes fun at Arsenal fans after Chelsea thrashing

Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole poked fun at Arsenal fans on Twitter, after posting a cheeky message and picture during Saturday's 6-0 thrashing at Stamford Bridge.

The 34-year-old, who was ruled out of the clash with a knee ligament injury, tweeted a photo of himself watching the game on television, complete with a 'thumbs-up' gesture and message: 'Enjoying the game'.

Gunners fans had high hopes heading into what was Arsene Wenger's 1000th game as manager, but after a sloppy start found themselves two goals down with less than 10 minutes on the clock in west London.

Samuel Eto'o and Andre Schurrle put Jose Mourinho's side in the driving seat from the off-set, and things went from bad to worse for the visitors when Kieran Gibbs was sent off following a handball in the box.

It turns out that it was actually Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who committed the deliberate handball offence, but a case of mistaken identity and error from Andre Mariner and his fellow officials saw the midfielder's Arsenal team-mate dismissed.

Eden Hazard compounded the misery by making it 3-0 from the penalty spot, and Oscar added a fourth before the interval to cap a disastrous 45 minutes for Wenger and his team on his landmark match.

Oscar doubled his tally after the interval before substitute Mohamed Salah completed the rout, to extend Chelsea's lead at the top of the table to six points.

Arsenal's title aspirations are now hanging by a thread, having been well-beaten by Chelsea, who now boast a seven point advantage over today's opponents, although they have played a game more.
