The Kardashian Curse

Following the unexpected defeat, fans on social media have attributed the club's loss to the so-called 'Kardashian Curse', which befell Arsenal on Thursday.

@tabuteauS wrote:

"The Kardashian curse is real."

@trikilimper added:

"She did it to Arsenal in the Europa League."

@badunitedfan, who appears to also be an Arsenal fan, pleaded with Kardashian to visit the Etihad Stadium until the end of the season:

"Can she go watch every City game from now until the end of the season, please?"

@SeanyBg teased:

"Kim Kardashian jinxing arsenal now, PSG."

@Alare_Bems summed up the Kardashian curse:

"Kim Kardashian visited Arsenal on Thursday, and we lost. Now she's gone to PSG, and they've also lost too. The moral of the story is, never allow Kim Kardashian on your club grounds if you really need to win that game."
