It was chief photographer and lifelong fan Stuart MacFarlane who delivered the team talk for the North London derby against Tottenham…and the Gunners went on to win 3-1.
Arteta picked up MacFarlane’s camera as he told the squad: “This guy, for the last 30 years has captured emotions, emotions and teams.
“I want you to hear from him, how he feels about you. And about our club.”

Who is Stuart MacFarlane and how long has he worked for Arsenal?
MacFarlane has been snapping Arsenal since 1991, and become a full-time staff photographer with the club in 2001.
He also supplied pictures for the ‘Invincibles’ book on Arsene Wenger released in 2014.
MacFarlane spoke of his highs and lows covering the Gunners: “The highs and lows are all linked to the success for the football club.
“So winning the league in 2002 and 2004, the FA Cup in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2014 and 2015 were brilliant times.
“And the only real low is losing in the final of the Champions League in 2006.”
What did Stuart MacFarlane say in the team talk?
MacFarlane looked at the players and said: “This is my club. I f*****g love this football club. And I f******g love all of you.”
“When you go out, first f***ing tackle, listen to the crowd. They will f***ing be on you straight away.
“Win every tackle. When you score, look in their faces. Look at their emotion, look how much they love you. Show them how much you love them, ok?”
