While fan protests have become increasingly common this season, Arsenal can take comfort from the support they appear to enjoy within the White House.
As President Trump and First Lady Melania hosted parents and children for the annual Easter Egg Roll celebrations on the White House lawn, their son Barron decided to take a break from proceedings.
And it seems 11-year-old Barron has nailed his colours to the mast after he was photographed playing football wearing Arsenal’s full red and white strip, including the socks.
Barron may have been something of a good luck charm for the Gunners, who ended their run of four Premier League away games without a win after beating Middlesbrough 2-1 on Easter Monday.

A number of players from four-time MLS Cup winners DC United were also in attendance at the White House that day, and striker Patrick Mullins revealed he chatted about football with Barron.
“He was very knowledgeable about soccer, knew about DC United and was interested to know more,” Mullins told the Washington Post.

“Little kids like to have a passion for the game and to be knowledgeable and have a conversation with us, it makes me feel good about kids growing up playing the game.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke donated $1m to Trump’s January Inauguration, documents released by the US Federal Election Commission on Wednesday have shown.
