Monaco have admitted that they were so bad against PSG on Sunday night that what they offered didn't really constitute 'football' and therefore they'll be reimbursing their fans.

The Parisians wrapped up the Ligue 1 title with a 7-1 humiliation of their closest rivals at the Parc des Princes, though it didn't perturb the small pocket of Monaco supporters over in the corner from singing their lungs out all evening.

While they remain 17 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, poor old PSG saw their four-match winning streak come to a shuddering halt against Saint Etienne on Friday night.

Former Newcastle employee Remy Cabella put the home side ahead in the 16th minute and that's the way it stood until the 92nd minute, when former Arsenal employee Mathieu Debuchy put one through his own net to equalise for the Parisians.

Having found himself slung upon the attacking midfielder stockpile, Hatem Ben Arfalast turned out for Paris Saint Germain over a year ago in a Coupe de France match against third-tier Avranches on 5th April, 2017.

So, to mark the anniversary of his last appearance, the forgotten winger threw himself a sarcastic little celebration which he documented on Instagram.

During his pomp, Mickael Landreau was a thoroughly decent goalkeeper and a prominent member of that mini-stable of really good French stoppers that seemed to peak in unison during the early-to-mid 2000s, alongside Gregory Coupet and Ulrich Rame.

One thing Landreau was not, however, was a consummate penalty taker so quite why he was tasked with taking a spot-kick during the shootout at the end of the 2004 Coupe de la Ligue final is anybody's guess.

Not only is a 3 week lay-off mid-season inordinately dull, it is also costly to the Arsenal squad.

Both Wilshire and Koscielny have been withdrawn from their respective squads for games this weekend.

Fortunately both injuries appear to be wear and tear and not something as devastating as JW's ankle knack when playing another meaningless game for England.
