Werder Bremen have had a dig at Arsenal after Serge Gnabry's hat-trick on his international debut for Germany - but the Gunners have hit back.
Gnabry failed to make the grade at the Emirates, and boss Arsene Wenger let him join the Bungesliga club in the summer after 18 appearances and just one solitary goal.
But he has been in good form for Bremen - with four goals so far this season - and he became the first Germany international to score a hat-trick on his debut since Dieter Muller in 1976 in Friday night's 8-0 hammering of San Marino in their World Cup qualifier.
His club posted a celebratory tweet of Gnabry's stunning debut - and cheekily tagged Arsenal in it.
But the Gunners did not take it lying down.
They responded with a tweet of their own, saying: "On the subject of hat-tricks, remember this?" alongside a picture of Ray Parlour celebrating his third goal in Arsenal's 6-2 demolition of...Werder Bremen in the 2000 UEFA Cup semi-final.
