Andrey Arshavin had a forgettable shift during Zenit St. Petersburg's Round of 16 clash with Borussia Dortmund. 

The diminutive Russian was subbed off after just 15 minutes with an apparent injury and a two-goal deficit. 

The former Arsenal man hardly made a contribution during his shift and was consequently torched on Twitter. 


Latest heat map in from the nerds in graphics. This time we look at Arshavin's contribution before he was subbed:

Did you know: Andrei Arshavin has a 35-minute sleep at 5.15pm EVERY DAY, no matter what he's doing. It's just a rule he lives by, OK?

Zenit just took attacker Andriy Arshavin off for defensive midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk. After going down two goals. Welp.
