FOOTBALL fans have been sent into a meltdown after Arsenal legend Alan Smith was bizarrely snapped sitting on FOUR CHAIRS at the Emirates.

The Gunners icon, 59, was on on Sky Sports commentary duty for the club's Carabao Cup semi-final second leg loss to Liverpool in North London.

But Smith - who stands at 6ft 3in - left Twitter users baffled after he was caught on camera sitting on a huge pile of chairs while watching on from the gantry.

Even more so when they spotted his legs looking uncomfortably squashed under his desk.

Athletic journalist Adam Hurrey posted a picture of the two-time First Division champion, where he said: "You may have detected this from his co-commentary already.

"But I can exclusively reveal that Sky's Alan Smith is sitting on *at least four chairs* at once at the Emirates."

Supporters couldn't believe what they were seeing, as one commented: "I have never seen those chairs outside of school."

Another quipped: "All those comfy seats in the Emirates and he’s sat on 4 plastic chairs."

A third joked: "Looks like he's had his booster."

Meanwhile one quipped: "This is how they pad out the attendance figures at the Emirates."

This fan then remarked: "City must do the same to get the attendance up."

Bu Smith might have wished he didn't have such a good vantage point as Jurgen Klopp's Red earned their spot at Wembley.

Arsenal, who named a near full strength team for the game against the Reds, went into the break 1-0 down after Diogo Jota broke the deadlock.

The Portuguese striker then doubled Liverpool's lead in the second half.

Prior to the match, it was reported how Arsenal had made a bid to sign New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner.

The 27-year-old helped the USA national team win the Concacaf Gold Cup in August, where he was named as the tournament's best shot-stopper.

His possible arrival could see back-up goalie Bernd Leno depart this month.

It has been said how the Germany international is a target for Newcastle, with Eddie Howe desperate to bolster his side.
