Kim Kardashian makes surprise appearance at Arsenal v Sporting match

Kardashian will be at Emirates Stadium to witness Arsenal’s crunch European clash against the Portuguese side.

Reality TV star and socialite Kim Kardashian is set to attend tonight’s Europa League match between Arsenal and Sporting.

Kardashian’s presence at the match is due to the filming of a new documentary, with her eldest son Saint West seen sporting Arsenal’s 2022/23 pink third kit in a recent photo.

One of the most recognisable celebrities in the world, Kardashian was recently pictured herself wearing a classic Roma kit from the 1997-98 season.

Arsenal, who go into the second leg level 2-2 on aggregate, will be looking to secure their place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has handed a start to Gabriel Jesus upfront, while Reiss Nelson, Fabio Vieira and Takehiro Tomiyasu also feature in the team.

"It was great to see Gabby back," said Arteta after Jesus’ return against Fulham.

"You can feel the happiness of everybody around him: supporters, players, and staff. We missed him and now we're glad he's back."

“We have to manage his minutes and we have to manage his involvement in the squad and in the team. But Gabby is feeling good every day that he's training.

“He says that these senses are getting better and better, so that's really positive.”
