Richard Keys has once again shown that he is the king of bad takes.
Arsenal dominated their North London rivals at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, winning 2-0 and putting them eight points clear at the top of the table.
But there were some unsavory scenes after the full-time whistle when a Spurs fan jumped past the stewards and kicked Arsenal goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale in the back.

Keys, who was covering the game for beinSPORTS, bizarrely blamed Arteta and his players for the incident.

“Ramsdale has got form of winding supporters up, apparently he’s been having an exchange during that second half with the Tottenham fans, Ben White was over there as well at 2-0 to Arsenal.” The presenter said.
My fear is and I’ve said it for a long time now, the guy in the middle there (Arteta), is the one that’s most to blame for the inflammatory behaviour on the touchline that winds people up, and if he’s not behaving himself, then it’s likely others in his time aren’t going to either.”
