Kim Kardashian, was in attendance for Arsenal’s Europa League defeat and many fans have jokingly blamed her for losing to Sporting Lisbon.
A global superstar thanks to her hit ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ show, the influencer has been offered up as the perfect scapegoat.
Posting a pre-match image of match programmes and a several bottles of Prime to her 348million Instagram followers, the 42-year-old wrote ‘send help’.
But Logan Paul, co-founder of the energy drink that is a sponsor of the Premier League side, noticed the post and joked on Twitter: “We made it.”
However, news of Kardashian’s apparent allegiance will come as a shock to Italian giants Roma who recently received a 2,400 per cent increase in Google search traffic after Kardashian was spotted in one of their retro kits.
In January, Kardashian’s son, Saint West, was spotted in an Arsenal third kit on his birthday, which comes as no surprise with the Premier League leaders attracting plenty of new fans.
His mother and global celebrity is reportedly filming at the Emirates for part of a new documentary about her life.

The young Kardashian didn’t get the result he wanted, though, with Sporting winning 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
Gabriel Martinelli missed the decisive spot-kick, with Arsenal’s attention now returning to their Premier League title push.
And fans would prefer Kardashian to never step foot in the Emirates again.
One user on Twitter wrote: “@Arsenal please lifetime ban Kim Kardashian from the Emirates.”
Another said: “Kardashian curse strikes again. Sorry @Arsenal,” with a third joking: “So this is all her fault.”
And boss Mikel Arteta insists going out of Europe is not a blessing in disguise as has been suggested by some.
“I don’t know, if you go through the competition and win it, it’s magnificent, if it’s not, then it affects your plans in the league, that’s a different story.
“We wanted to go through and we put everything into it, the effort the boys put when it wasn’t our best day, individually and collectively, the hunger and the desire they showed to win, the way they were tracking back was incredible, they really wanted it and today it didn’t happen. We need to put our heads up, look towards Crystal Palace, it’s 11 games left, the first one starts on Sunday.”
