‘Clear and Obvious’ Arsenal Fans Furious After Key Decision Goes Against Them In Villa Loss

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette was hauled down by Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez in the box during the 1-0 defeat at Villa Park yesterday.

However, referee Chris Kavanagh adjudged it to be a foul the other way and gave the free-kick to the Villans instead. Lacazette took to Twitter after the game to vent his frustration at the decision:

Lacazette does run into Martinez but the Argentinian international grabs the Frenchman’s jersey and hauls him to the ground, leaving many fans angered with the decision making of the officials:

Manager Mikel Arteta lamented the “many” decisions that went against his side on the day, and that is two games in a row now where refereeing calls have cost the Gunners points.

It is frustrating, to say the least, considering Arsenal were building up some momentum before these two defeats. They will be hoping for more luck when they face Leeds next Sunday.
