Rihanna gave Arsenal fans a treat this weekend after she attended their match against Everton at London's Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
The 'Wild Thoughts' songstress rocked up with her brother Rorrey to watch the game, which resulted in a victorious 5-1 result for the Gunners.

According to football correspondent James Olley, the Bajan beauty was said to be "causing a bit of a stir in the tunnel area" and spent time in the players' lounge near the dressing rooms.
The star also posed alongside left-back Sead Kolašinac and centre-back Shkodran Mustafi, who both thanked Rihanna for her support.
After a video clip of the singer holding up her own Arsenal shirt and proclaiming "I'm a Gooner!" went viral online, fans couldn't believe what they were witnessing.
