The Arsenal playmaker once again made the three-finger hand gesture after scoring in the 3-2 victory over Swansea City on Saturday.

"That's for my niece," he told the Gunners' official website. "She's called Mira and when I score now, the goals are for her.

"She's too young to notice but she has come to London a few times and has watched some games in which I've scored and then made that hand gesture.

"I just enjoy spending time with her because she's so cute. She's at the age where she's a lot of fun to be around.
