Arsenal thrashed Galatasaray in the Champions League this week with a comfortable 4-1 victory perhaps their best performance of the season so far.
Goals from Alexis Sanchez and a superb hat-trick from Danny Welbeck saw Arsenal charge to victory, following up their disappointing 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the opening game.
But truth be told this was not the best Galatasaray team of recent years. New manager Cesare Prandelli is struggling to get them firing on all cylinders and as a consequence they have been struggling in recent fixtures to get the results they need. Results they need to keep one of the more vociferous fanbases in Europe happy.
Gala fans have a fierce reputation in the footballing community and that was evident on Wednesday night.
Gala fans threw flares onto the pitch during the tie and it only took the pleading of captain Wesley Sneijder to calm them down.
But pictures have now emerged showing some of the damage Gala fans caused to the seating at The Emirates, totalling around 400 seats, according to reports.
Arsenal and Galatasaray have both been charged by UEFA and face potential fines for the incidents.
