Yaya Sanogo scores a hat-trick for Charlton and Arsenal fans go mental on Twitter

Arsenal were crying out for a goalscorer last Tuesday when they squandered chance after chance against Barcelona before eventually losing 2-0.

Oliver Giroud was subject to severe trolling on Twitter, while some Gooners were asking why Arsene Wenger didn't splash out on a world-class forward last summer or in January.

But maybe they have already have a natural goalscorer in their ranks in the form of Yaya Sanogo.

The 23-year-old signed for the Emirates club in 2013 and is yet to score a league goal.

Well, that was until today, because he has just scored a hat-trick for Championship side Charlton - where he is on loan at from the Gunners.

As expected, Arsenal fans reacted in sensational fashion on social media.

Here are some of the best tweets:

Unfortunately, Sanogo’s three goals still weren’t enough for to see the bottom place Charlton pick up any points as they fell to a 3-4 defeat to Reading.

To make things even more remarkable, the match was Sanogo’s full-debut for Charlton after he had spent the first part of the campaign at Ajax in the Eredivisie.

Sanogo was signed by Arsenal on a free transfer after he left French club Auxerre and has spent unsuccessful loan spells at Crystal Palace and Ajax.

Wenger will be hoping he can recall him for the return-leg against Barcelona as the Gunners need to score at least twice to have any chance of progressing the the quarter-finals.
