Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp was fuming with the fan who kicked Aaron Ramsdale in the back after their North London win on Sunday.
The Gunners extended their lead at the top of the table to eight points with a huge win against their hated rivals, Tottenham. Mikel Arteta’s men were a class above in the first half, Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka both found the back of the net as Spurs struggled to stay above water.
Antonio Conte’s side was far better in the second half and forced Ramsdale to make some excellent saves but they couldn’t capitalize. At full-time, the Arsenal goalkeeper and Richarlison got into it with the latter taking a swipe at the English man’s head.
As Ramsdale picked up his water bottle, a Spurs fan jumped out from the crowd and kicked him in the back.
Redknapp, who played for Spurs, was fuming at the fan and laid into him after the game.
“It’s completely out of order and unacceptable”

It’s completely unacceptable from the Spurs fan,” Redknapp said. “He’s been getting stick all game as he said, he reacts, you can see Richarlison gets involved as well.
“This is part of football, that, a little bit of stick, but for a fan to come and do that as we see it unfold, come on and try and kick a player on the pitch is completely unacceptable. He’s got to get his water bottle, he’s got to get his gloves, and I’m sure that Spurs will act accordingly. He shouldn’t be allowed in the football stadium, that guy, and it’s completely out of order and unacceptable.”
Should the fan get a lifetime ban?
