Kai Havertz broke the unwritten rule in football of not celebrating against your former club after netting twice in Arsenal's demolition exercise against Chelsea.

The Germany international, who left the Blues for the Gunners last summer, was among the goal scorers as Arsenal laid a marker with a statement win over their London rivals.

He first found the back of the net after connecting to a tantalising pass from Martin Odegaard before doubling his account and increasing his side's tally with an almost carbon-copy finish.

With his brace against Mauricio Pochettino's men, the 24-year-old became the first former Chelsea star to score twice against the Stamford Bridge outfit, as noted by SportBIBLE.

In the process of reaching this enviable feat, Havertz ended up throwing the 'don't celebrate' against your old club out of the window with a Neymar-like celebration.

As has become customary, the former Bayer Leverkusen prodigy stuck out his tongue while putting his hands on his head, according to the Mirror.

How Chelsea's X account responded to Havertz's goals

In a related publication, Sports Brief reported that football fans were quick to notice Chelsea's official X account's response to Kai Havertz's goals against his former team.

The German international scored twice as Arsenal defeated the Blues 5-0 at the Emirates on Tuesday night. While Chelsea credited the scorers for the first and second goals on X, they notably left out Havertz's name after his goals.

The club posted on social media, "Goal for the Gunners." For his second goal, which was Arsenal's fourth of the evening, they simply wrote, "Goal to Arsenal."

As reported by Sports Brief, Havertz and Ben White each scored twice as Arsenal secured a dominant 5-0 victory over Chelsea at the Emirates.

This win propelled them into the lead in the Premier League title race and increased pressure on both Liverpool and Manchester City.

Trossard also scored a goal for the Gunners, who now have a three-point lead over Liverpool and are four points ahead of Man City.
