Arsenal fans have reacted with good humour to the news that they will be drawn against Swedish side Ostersunds in the next round of the Europa League.
The Swedish side are managed by Englishman Graham Potter and have been a club for less time than Arsene Wenger has been manager of the Gunners.
Wegner’s side comfortably qualified for the knockout round of 32 by fishing top of Group H, which included Red Star Belgrade, FC Koln and BATE Borisov.
The Gunners side won four of their six group matches, including a convincing 6-0 victory over Belarusian side BATE Borisov in their final match of the group phase at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday evening.
They could have been drawn against the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Athletic Madrid, Napoli or Celtic who were all eliminated from the Champions League but got what should be an easy tie instead – on a day when they’re more used to drawing the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
Arsenal supporters wasted little time in taking to social media to react to the draw – Football Insider has rounded up a selection of their best tweets:

Arsenal fans are normally used to being the in the draw for the last-16 of the Champions League but the Gunners missed out on a place in Europe’s elite club competition by failing to finish in the Premier League’s top-four last season.
Wenger’s side are currently fifth in this season’s Premier League table, after drawing 1-1 at Southampton on Sunday.
