Arsenal's official Twitter account inadvertently trolled Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta ahead of this afternoon's Premier League showdown with rivals Chelsea, reports the Telegraph.
When relaying the Chelsea substitutes via social media, the Gunners placed Arteta alongside the likes of John Terry, Radamel Falcao and Co.
Arteta, of course, has endured a tricky time in north London of late, and failed to produce the goods in the Champions League on Wednesday night as the Gunners suffered defeat at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb.

Unsurprisingly, he was dropped to the bench for today's huge clash, but not the Chelsea one...
Arsenal even managed to tag Arteta in the tweet, so it was a quite ridiculous fail from the club's social media team.
Time running out
It's not entirely surprising that Arteta is struggling for opportunities in north London. Ultimately, after a fine stint in the Premier League, the Spaniard is now approaching the final stages of his career and may not have too long left plying his trade in the famous red and white of Arsenal.
In truth, many had expected the club's hierarchy to replace the former Everton man in the last transfer window, but Wenger failed to add to his outfield squad. One thing is for sure, Arteta won't be starring in west London for Chelsea before he hangs up his boots.
