Music star Rihanna showed her support for Arsenal as she went along to watch the Gunners defeat Everton 5-1 on Saturday evening.

The 29-year-old singer was thanked by Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi for "crossing her fingers", while Mesut Ozil called her a "lucky charm".

Her appearance came less than four years after she supported Germany - including Mustafi and Ozil - in the 2014 World Cup Final against Argentina, which they went on to win.

Mustafi shared a picture of Rihanna posing in a line-up including himself and Arsenal's Bosnian full-back Sead Kolasinac on the field after the match.

He tweeted: "The result we needed today! Thanks for crossing your fingers @rihanna that has always turned out really well... #Brazil2014 #workworkwork #sm20 @arsenal."

There's 1500/1 available with Sky Bet if Rihanna or any other Arsenal fans are confident enough to go for title success this season.

Kolasinac shared a picture of himself and Rihanna.

He said: "Great team effort and important win.

"Thanks for your support @rihanna! #AFCvEFC @Arsenal #Rihanna #SeoKol."

Rihanna was also happy to pose for a selfie with Ozil, who wrote on Twitter: "Still unbeaten with Riri @rihanna #WorldCupFinal2014 #AFC #Emirates #luckycharm @Arsenal @DFB_Team."

Sharing the same photo on Instagram, the footballer added: "She knows which football teams to support."

Arsenal won the match against Everton 5-1, with Aaron Ramsey scoring a hat-trick and club-record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also on target on his Gunners debut.
