The Gunners unveiled their home strip ahead of the 2017/18 campaign on Wednesday and all appeared fine initially as fans headed towards the club's website to put a pre-order in.

However, an unfortunate mistake from Arsenal led to supporters panicking that star man Alexis Sanchez had been pretty much confirmed as leaving ahead of the summer transfer window.

Alexis, who has just one year left on his current contract with talks ongoing over an extension, has been strongly linked with a departure, with Manchester City in the mix.

So, when fans found that Alexis' team-mate, Danny Welbeck, was an option when wanting to buy a new Arsenal home shirt with the number seven on the back, it's fair to say a meltdown had started!

Arsenal quickly corrected the mistake, with Welbeck soon appearing as an option for his current number 23 jersey, in what was an unexpected mix-up from the club.

And breathe...
