Serge Gnabry has taken a dig at Sutton’s reserve goalkeeper Wayne Shaw on Twitter after Arsenal secured a 2-0 FA Cup win at Gander Green Lane.
Former Arsenal winger Gnabry left the Gunners in the summer after struggling to hold down a regular starting spot under Arsene Wenger, joining Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, Gnabry comically claimed that 45-year-old Shaw decided to eat a pie on the substitutes’ bench after realising Sutton “can’t beat Arsenal”.

The Daily Mail have reported that Shaw is now under investigation for pulling off the stunt in the 83rd minute, as Sun Bets had offered 8-1 odds of Shaw eating a pie prior to the match.
In the aftermath of that, in a move that’s taken the gloss off Sutton’s run, The Telegraph has reported that Shaw has tendered his resignation to the club, who have accepted it.
Goals from summer signing Lucas Perez and England international Theo Walcott secured a relatively comfortable night for the Gunners, as they progressed into the quarter finals of the FA Cup.
Wenger’s side will now face another non-league opponent in the last eight in the form of Lincoln City, after they defied the odds to beat Premier League Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor.
Since moving back to his home country, Gnabry has been in wonderful form for Werder Bremen after having a hand in 10 goals during his 20 league and cup appearances.
Scoring eight goals against the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach, RedBull Leipzig and Schalke, the two-time Germany international has also provided two assists.
However, it remains clear that Gnabry’s thoughts are still with Arsenal after his most recent Tweet.
