An Arsenal fan has shown his successful betting slip after winning £4,250 from a £125 bet.
Callum McGinley, better known by his web name Callux, backed his team to a 5-0 win against Nottingham Forest with Gabriel Martinelli scoring first, and his wishes were granted at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
He posted a photo of the bet slip at 3:36pm, just a few minutes into regulation time with the score 5-0, begging his team to stop scoring with the caption: ‘FOR GOD’S LOVE ARSENAL’.
An Arsenal fan has won £4,250 after placing an ambitious £150 bet on his side on Sunday.
The fans needed Gabriel Martinelli to score first and for Arsenal to beat the Emirates 5-0
Mikel Arteta’s side returned to the top of the Premier League with victory, which came the easy way as the Gunners dismantled the division’s basement side in north London.
Martinelli opened the scoring after five minutes, before substitute Reiss Nelson scored a brace in his first appearance of the season to make it 3-0.
Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard then made it 5-0 in the 78th minute, before the YouTube star gasped during the game’s final period.

But Arsenal answered his pleas and did not score again, earning McGinley a profit of over £4,000.
He shared a celebration video taken at the final whistle, where he can be seen hugging players like KSI in celebration.
The 33/1 bet triggered fan hysteria on social media, with one follower tweeting: ‘LOOOL, you got it.’
Another asked: ‘Would you like to lend me a five dollar bill?’ as McGinley’s supporters congratulated him on his winnings below the celebratory video captioned: ‘man like Callux, the king of the stakes’.
