On Thursday night, Kim Kardashian was spotted at Arsenal's 1-1 Sporting Lisbon Europa League match, leading some to speculate that she may have gone to watch the match for her son Saint.
The reality star shared an image of William Saliba match programmes and bottles of Prime Hydration - the official beverage of Arsenal, run by social media stars KSI and Logan Paul - to her 348 million followers with the caption: "Send help."
On Thursday night, Kim Kardashian made an unexpected appearance at Arsenal's 1-1 Sporting match against Manchester United, shocking fans as she entered the Emirates Stadium with her son Saint. However, it appears she was there for another purpose; filming a documentary about Arsenal's history.
Before the match, she shared a picture on her Instagram Stories showing she had arrived at the stadium with several children wearing Arsenal football tops and her blonde friend. Joking that her 348 million followers'send help' as they waited for the game to start, she shared pictures of match programmes and bottles of Prime drinks - sponsors of the club.
At first sight, it was surprising to see Saint at the Emirates stadium, yet he appeared in high spirits and appeared to be having an enjoyable time. Additionally, his Arsenal kit suggested that Saint is an avid supporter of the London club.
In the opening half, Granit Xhaka opened the scoring for Arsenal before Pedro Goncalves equalised from near halfway line. The former Wolves attacker then lobbed Aaron Ramsdale from 45 yards out, leaving the Arsenal goalkeeper gasping.
Arsenal had looked poised for victory until a penalty shootout decided the victor. Suddenly, Arsenal were out in the quarter-finals - an unexpected upset!
Mikel Arteta selected a squad that featured plenty of rotation, including Gabriel Jesus making his debut and Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Thomas Partey returning to the starting eleven. However, Arsenal were unable to break down Sporting's resilient defence as the Leoes went on to secure a 5-3 penalties victory that sent them through on away goals.
Arsenal were in control for much of the game and Xhaka had their best opportunity after 25 minutes, though Adan saved his shot. However, he got the ball back and hit a low drive from outside the box that just missed by inches.
One of the oddest sights at a football match is seeing a celebrity watching it. That was certainly the case on Thursday night when reality TV star Kim Kardashian attended Arsenal's Europa League clash against Sporting Lisbon with her son Saint by her side.
The 42-year-old was reportedly filming her new documentary at the game, and it appears she didn't mind taking her son along for the ride. Mikel Arteta's side played Sporting to a 1-1 draw at Emirates Stadium after Granit Xhaka's opener and Pedro Goncalves' stunning strike. The social media influencer watched from the VIP stands of the Emirates Stadium with her family in tow.
As a result, the game went to extra time before Arsenal were eliminated from the competition on penalties. This means they must now refocus on their Premier League title bid.
However, with 11 games left to play and Arsenal five points ahead of second-placed Manchester City, there is still time for them to close the gap to just three points and create some distance between themselves and their rivals.
Kim has previously been seen at sporting events with her son Saint, who donned an Arsenal third kit for his birthday party last January. Saint is an ardent supporter of the north London club and Kim can be seen beaming with pride as her son represents it so well.
Kim remained casually dressed in a black and white striped shirt with her raven locks styled into effortless waves. As she watched the action unfold on the field, she chatted with her son about what was happening on the pitch.
Kim may not have been as enthusiastic about the match as her son was, it's unlikely she will be tempted to attend any other matches in the future. The world-famous star has achieved fame through her appearances on 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' and is now a global phenomenon.
On Thursday evening (March 16), world-renowned reality star and social influencer Kim Kardashian was seen at Arsenal 1-1 Sporting as part of her documentary project. Additionally, she was seen watching the match alongside her son Saint West who is an ardent Arsenal supporter.
In January, Kardashian shared a video of her son wearing an Arsenal strip to his sister Chicago's birthday party. This sparked speculation that the family are fans of the north London club.
On Thursday night, she was photographed at the Emirates Stadium in London with her son Saint, an avid Arsenal supporter. They were pictured together watching the game together, with Saint even wearing his own Arsenal shirt!
Though Kim Kardashian may have come as a shocker at the Emirates Stadium, she's not the first celebrity to make an unexpected appearance at a football match. Paris Hilton was seen at a BBC NUJ picket line in London earlier this week and rappers such as Akon and Kanye West have also been spotted in the UK.
On Thursday night, it was Kim Kardashian who captured the most attention for Arsenal during their Europa League clash against Sporting Lisbon. The world-renowned TV personality was seen at the match with her seven-year old son Saint - an avid Arsenal supporter.
According to beIN SPORTS, Kardashian was in attendance at the match with her son as part of a documentary she was filming. Sports presenter Carrie Brown confirmed this information via an Arsenal communications officer.
When asked by beIN SPORTS why she was at the Arsenal game, Kardashian replied: "I'm here as part of my documentary I'm filming, and as an ardent Arsenal fan - so that's why I came out here tonight."
Many Arsenal fans were dismayed to hear this news; they had hoped the Gunners would secure a victory at their home stadium after taking an impressive 2-2 draw from Sporting in the last 16 of the Europa League and were looking for their first ever trip to the quarter-finals.
Kim Kardashian was in London on Thursday night to watch Arsenal take on Sporting Lisbon, and it appears she was there as part of a documentary being filmed at the club. As one of the biggest celebrities in the world, it's no surprise she would be there.
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian boasts 348million followers on Instagram, so it is no shock that her post inside the stadium drew attention from viewers. However, her presence at the game has caused much controversy.
She shared a photo to her Instagram story that showed her and her son Saint watching the match from the stands. Saint is an ardent Arsenal fan, and was seen wearing his iconic shirt during the contest.
On the night, Arsenal took a commanding lead after Granit Xhaka pounced onto a goal-bound Granit Milinkovic shot. Former Wolves attacker Pedro Goncalves then lobbed Aaron Ramsdale from 45 yards for a level tie. Unfortunately, Arsenal eventually lost 5-3 on penalties.
Even though Kardashian was in the stands with her son, she wasn't pleased with the outcome. She could be seen talking to a friend during the match and seemed to enjoy Bukayo Saka's penalty in the shootout, yet clearly wasn't contented with its outcome.
Saint West's mother shared a photo of him wearing an Arsenal strip in January, showing that he is an ardent fan. While it seems unlikely he will follow in her father Kanye West's footsteps and support Manchester United, there's little doubt Saint will continue to follow the Premier League team.
Reports indicated that Kardashian was in attendance at Arsenal's Champions League clash against Wolfsburg in August and seemed in good spirits throughout the match. She wore her brunette locks down in a natural curl and donned her usual palette of makeup for the occasion.
Meanwhile, she will be hoping her team's Premier League title run-in continues to go well. They lead the table by five points and can extend that lead to eight if they defeat Crystal Palace at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
