Before a match that proved one Arsenal legend still has a bit of magic left another former Gunners favorite showed that his own field awareness isn't quite what it used to be.

During warm-ups prior to Monday's match between Leeds United and Arsenal, ESPN commentator and former Arsenal defender Martin Keown took an errant pass from a Leeds player right to the head.

Immediately after contact was made, the crowd and even some of the players could be heard cheering, and Keown, who was not injured and was a good sport overall, gave them a thumbs up.

While Leeds may have struck before the game began, they were unable to do so during the contest itself, getting shut out enroute to a 1-0 loss to Arsenal. That goal was scored for Thierry Henry and certainly shows the Gunners old boys in a much better light.
