BBC Radio 5Live’s 606 show has found some incredible callers over the years, but this one has got to be right up there.
Speaking after the Gunners had come from 2-0 down at the Emirates to draw with Tottenham in the North London derby, one Arsenal fan got a little carried away to say the very least.
Not only did he claim that his club would win the Premier League title this season, he claimed that Arsenal have a better squad than the Reds and Manchester City, and that player for player, the Gunners are ‘superior’.
Even when offered the chance to revise his claims and make himself look a little less deluded, the caller would not back down.
Among his incredible suggestions were that David Luiz is better than Virgil van Dijk, Hector Bellerin is better than Trent Alexander-Arnold, and that Mesut Ozil is better than Kevin de Bruyne.

Come back at the end of the season, the caller says, and we’ll see who is laughing. We certainly will – and it won’t be him!
