These were the best İlkay Gündoğan dead jokes after the Manchester City players came out of the tunnel at the Etihad wearing shirts featuring the recently injured midfielder’s name and number on the front prior to their clash with Arsenal on Sunday.

In what looked liked a memorial for the the player, the team paid their respects to the German international who is set to miss the rest of the season after tearing the cruciate ligaments in his right knee during a midweek win over Watford.

With the club widely mocked for their tribute, here are the best of the İlkay Gündoğan dead jokes:

To be fair is probably the best way to remember Gundogan now he's dead

Nice touch from City re: Gundogan named shirts. Assuming 'nice touch' means pointlessly over the top gesture for still alive human being.

Awful start by City. Gundogan will be turning in his grave.

99 – Percentage of Man City fans surprised to hear Ilkay Gundogan died this week. Tribute.

Disrespectful of Arsenal to score before the 8th minute, pretty sure City had a collective applause planned for the departed Gundogan

Lot of empty seats at the Etihad….they must all be at Gundogan's funeral…. #mcfc #gundogan #Etihad

Poor Gundogan. The first footballer to ever get injured.
