Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain turns 21 on Friday, and there were plenty of birthday wishes for the Arsenal winger. 

The best of the lot, however, probably came from Jack Wilshere, who Instagrammed a picture of Kieran Gibbs.


Why? Of course, last season there was a remarkable incident during Chelsea vs. Arsenal when the Ox handballed in his own penalty area.

Referee Andre Marriner correctly issued a red card—but not to right the culprit. Kieran Gibbs got his marching orders instead. 

The jokes continue to this day, clearly.

In the same spirit, Gibbs himself tweeted a message to his team-mate earlier today but as one commenter remarked: "Who's who?"
