Handshake partner Raila Odinga is a happy man, thanks to Arsenal's break of the jinx that had seen them lose all their first three opening matches.

In the match that just ended at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal thrashed Tottenham 3-1, and "Baba" as he is famously known, was beaming with pride.

Arsenal's goals were scored by Emile Smith Rowe in the 12th minute, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 27th minute, and Bukayo Saka seven minutes later.

Tottenham got its consolation goal in the 79th minute courtesy of Son Heung-min.

Raila celebrated the win by sharing a photo of himself watching the match with his arms raised in the air.

"Back to winning ways! Well in Arsenal!" he captioned it.

Rediscovered scoring boots

After losing all the first three matches, Arsenal has managed to stabilise the ship and claw its way back to victory with three back to back wins.

That has seen the Gunners climb up the ladder from the bottom place they had been embedded to position 10, with nine points after six matches.

Wins against Norwich City, Burnley, and Tottenham have come in handy to help the team pacify its fans over painful losses against Manchester City, Chelsea, and Brentford.

Raila's love for Arsenal

In a 2017 interview on Radio Maisha, Raila explained where his love for football begun and how he ended up being an Arsenal fan despite Manchester United being his first love.

He revealed that while living abroad, he was a Manchester United supporter but things changed when their fans started becoming violent and FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) banned them from attending matches.

"During that time, Man U players were playing without any fan in the stadium, thereafter, I decided to join arsenal. Since then, I’m an arsenal die-hard fan,” said Raila.

In 2016, he was pictured outside the Emirates Stadium clad in an Arsenal scarf and cap when the team was playing against Middlesbrough.
