Arsenal have been forced to amend a social media error after accidentally portraying a couple having sex which was spotted by fans.

The Gunners will face Nurnberg on Friday afternoon in a pre-season friendly after jetting off to Germany this week. Mikel Arteta could throw in new signings Gabriel Jesus, signed from Manchester City, and Fabio Vieira as he continues his rebuild of the team.

While more transfers are planned including potential bids for Lisandro Martinez and Raphinha, the Arsenal boss must build up his current crop's fitness. However, away from the pitch the social media team have made quite the blunder.

On Twitter, the club have posted details about the upcoming match against Nurnberg which included a link to their home site. But the picture that was used in the caption included one scarf that had two people doing the nasty that was failed to be picked up by those in the social media team at Arsenal.

However, it did not take long for eagle-eyed fans to notice – albeit that the x-rated error was hardly hidden – with several replying to the tweet with some close-up screenshots. Arsenal quickly amended the tweet which now shows a young Nurnberg fan holding a flag.

Fans have been told that they can watch the friendly on Friday afternoon on the club's website for a fee of £5.99 for UK viewers. It requires a match pass to be purchased with those interested being asked to buy early to avoid connection problems.

The Gunners then jet off to the United States to face Everton and Orlando City before their Emirates Cup match against Sevilla, which will also be streamed on their website.

Arsenal have already been in action after a behind-closed-doors friendly against Ipswich that saw Eddie Nketiah bag a hat-trick.
