DANI CEBALLOS showed off his impressive passing range… by nutmegging team-mate Alexandre Lacazette, despite the French forward lying flat on the ground.
With the game evenly poised at 0-0, the Spanish midfielder played a seemingly impossible ball THROUGH his team-mate.
Whether superb timing or blind luck, Lacazette raised his body off the ground at the perfect moment as the ball sailed through his legs and just under his chin.
However, that was about as good as it got for both Arsenal and Ceballos – who was largely a passenger throughout the game at the Amex.
Taking to Twitter, one angry fan wrote: “Bet Ceballos never kicks a ball for Madrid.
“Not a chance he’s at that level, he’s not even at our level. Bang average.”
Another even joked: “Imagine how out of his depth Ceballos must be in Real Madrid training…”
Nicolas Pepe gave Arsenal the lead ten minutes after the bonkers nutmeg, before Lewis Dunk equalised seven minutes later.
And Neal Maupay, the real pantomime villain for Gooners on the day, netted in the fifth minute of just four added on to steal a famous win.
The defeat saw Arsenal break THREE unwanted records, becoming the first team to ever lose a televised 3pm Saturday kick-off.
The Gunners also lost their first Saturday 3pm game in five years, while also slipping to a league double against Brighton for the first time.
It was a match mired in controversy, as Maupay clattered into Bernd Leno – resulting in the German goalkeeper being taken off on a stretcher.
Leno could miss the rest of 2020 if the injury turns out to be an issue with his knee ligaments.
And, after Maupay scored his last-gasp winner, Arsenal players reacted with raw fury – with Matteo Guendouzi even grabbing him by the neck.
