‘Did not like that’: Arsenal man told to ‘get used to it’ by Sky Sports commentator after moment in 12th minute
The Gunners put in an excellent first-half display and went into the break 2-0 up after goals from William Saliba and Gabriel Jesus.
The young Arsenal side silenced the crowd at the Gtech Community Stadium as they outplayed the Bees in the first-half.
Vieira was handed his first start by Mikel Arteta due to Martin Odegaard being ruled out with an injury.
And in the 12th minute of the game, the 22-year-old was on the receiving end of a strong tackle from Brentford man Ben Mee.
Vieira told to ‘get used to it’ by Sky Sports commentator
Vieira received the ball from Ben White near the touchline and tried to take the former Burnley man on.
But Mee put in a strong challenge and won the ball while sending Vieira tumbling to the ground.
And the Arsenal man could be seen complaining to the assistant referee, while Mee smiled.
“A little wave of the arm from Vieira, had a chat with the assistant,” Goodman said.
“Did not like that. Well, you better get used to it young man. That’s the way it is in the Premier League.”
Vieira seems to have settled in well at Arsenal and certainly did not look out of place on his full Premier League debut.
The former Porto man scored a brilliant goal in the second-half too as his effort from outside the box went in off the inside of the post.
The Gunners returned to the top of the league after the 3-0 win and will now spend the international break as league leaders.
It was the perfect response from Arteta’s men after a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford two weeks ago.
