Some Arsenal fans fuming after Schlupp escapes sending off for 'absolute horror' tackle

Some Arsenal fans have been left fuming after Crystal Palace’s Jeffery Schlupp avoided a red card for his tackle on Calum Chambers.

With the game just five minutes old, the midfielder went in on the Gunners right-back studs up, on his ankle, in a situation which proved similar to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s sending off last season.

It wasn’t the only questionable decision of the night with Christian Benteke and Joel Ward lucky to escape reds after an elbow into Mohamed Elneny’s throat and a kick out at Kieran Tierney respectively.
