  • Arsenal beat Liverpool 3-1 to close the gap on the Merseyside team at the top of the Premier League table
  • Mikel Arteta was spotted using Jurgen Klopp's iconic celebration after his side beat Liverpool in the league
  • Alejandro Garnacho recently pulled out a Cristiano Ronaldo celebration after scoring for Manchester United

They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

If that is the case, then Mikel Arteta must be a real admirer of Jurgen Klopp.

The Arsenal boss was spotted copying Klopp's celebration after his team beat the German manager's team 3-1 in the English Premier League.

As noted by The Telegraph, Arteta's men capitalised on a poor performance by Alisson Becker and co to close the gap on the league leaders.

Following their win, Arteta was seen celebrating with the Arsenal supporters, pulling out the Klopp fist pumps.

The Reds' boss is known for celebrating with the Liverpool faithful after victories, doing three fist pumps before beating his chest.

While Arteta didn't resort to the chest-beating, his celebration bore a striking resemblance to Klopp's.

Garnacho copies Cristiano Ronaldo's goal celebration

Arteta wasn't the only person in the current game week who drew inspiration from someone else's celebrations.

Manchester United's Alejandro Garnacho also made headlines for performing Cristiano Ronaldo's celebration after scoring against West Ham United.

The Argentinian was really advised to celebrate more like Lionel Messi after scoring by Angel di Maria but doesn't seem to have heeded that call. Despite being a national teammate of the Inter Miami star, Garnacho has been a vocal admirer of CR7 and has copied his celebrations in the past.

Garnacho snubs Lionel Messi for Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United winger Alejandro Garnacho has ruffled a few feathers in Argentina after his latest comments, Sports Brief reported.

The Argentinian, who plays alongside Lionel Messi, has not hidden his admiration for Messi's rival, Al-Nassr captain Cristiano Ronaldo.

Garnacho models his game around CR7 and even uses the Portuguese superstar's celebrations after scoring a goal for his club.
