'How?', 'He's playing judo' - Arsenal fans couldn't believe Harry Winks stayed on the pitch for Tottenham yesterday
Arsenal lost out in the North London derby yesterday as a late Toby Alderweireld header ensured Tottenham came away with a 2-1 victory.
It was a sweet win for Jose Mourinho, who has been coming under increased pressure in recent weeks thanks to a series of a below-par performances from his team.
For Arsenal, meanwhile, it was a blow to their hopes of European football. Things have picked up considerably under Mikel Arteta but yesterday once again highlighted some flaws in their game.
However, this wasn’t the main thing a lot of Gunners fans picked up on.
Instead, it was the situation surrounding Spurs midfielder, Harry Winks, who committed a number of fouls before finally being booked late in the second half.
Some Arsenal supporters online couldn’t believe the England man had survived so long. Indeed, there was plenty of comments suggesting that Winks should have even seen red.
Here, then, is a look at what Gunners fans were saying about Winks’ continued fouling as they lost out to Spurs.
Harry winks should’ve been booked 4-5 times. Mental
