Tottenham Hotspur fans incensed by Alexandre Lacazette VAR incident

Tottenham Hotspur fans cannot understand why their local rival’s striker was not sent off against Leeds.

Arsenal took on Leeds United in the FA Cup third round this evening and will be counting themselves lucky to still be in the draw for the next round. 

Leeds dominated the first-half but could not take their chances and ended up being punished by a much-improved Arsenal in the second half. 

One Arsenal player who was also perhaps lucky not to receive a red card was Alexandre Lacazette. 

The French striker appeared to kick out at Leeds defender Gaetano Berardi in the second-half after the pair became entangled on the floor. The moment was checked by the VAR and no further action was taken.

One former Tottenham player was certainly not happy with the decision. Ryan Mason posted his opinion on twitter, eventually getting his spelling right, to slam the fact Lacazette was not shown red.

It was an incident that had some Tottenham fans incensed. 

Tottenham attacker Heung-min Son was sent off for a similar incident involving Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger recently. 

The South Korean kicked out at the German, who then made the most of the contact in order to secure the Spurs player’s dismissal. 

It was, however, a red card offence from Son but Tottenham fans are rightly wondering why Lacazette did not receive the same VAR fate that their South Korean hero did against Chelsea.
