Arsenal fan hides in plain sight in Tottenham Hotspur fans during north London derby

Arsenal fan hides in plain sight in Tottenham Hotspur fans during north London derby

An Arsenal fan has gone viral, after following in the footsteps of his fellow fan, by hiding in the home end during the north London derby.

There was plenty for Arsenal fans to cheer about on Sunday, as they increased their lead at the top of the Premier League table to eight points, with a win over local rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Spurs' own ground.

Some shocking goalkeeping by Hugo Lloris allowed the visitors to go ahead in just the 14th minute, with the recent World Cup runner up dropping a shot that was straight at him into the goal.

Martin Odegaard's long range shot nine minutes before halftime pretty much ended the match as a contest, even if Spurs did improve in the second half.

Whilst the away end was bouncing, one Arsenal fan was hiding in plain sight behind enemy lines, and went viral for showing off his Arsenal kit in the home end, without the steward noticing, as you can see in the video below.

It is not the first time that an Arsenal fan has gotten away with it too, with another supporter also going viral for doing similar in the away game against Chelsea.

On that occasion, the fan lifted his phone in the air showing the Arsenal badge on his screen, before putting it away and sinking back into the Stamford Bridge seats.

The two examples show that football fans are capable of behaving impeccably, because usually it's one or two morons ruining it for everyone else.

That was the case on Sunday as well, as one Spurs fan kicked Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at the end of the match, as the England player collected his things.

The fan had got down to the front of the stand, stood on the hoardings and aimed a kick at Ramsdale, before being pushed away by a steward and disappearing back up the stands.

Speaking after the match, the keeper said, "The Spurs fans were giving me some [stick] throughout the second half.

"I gave them some back and the few people I did do it to was probably well-greeted, sportsmanship-like. And then a fan jumped over and gave me a little punch [sic] in the back.

"That’s what happened and it’s a shame as it’s just a game of football at the end of the day. Thankfully nothing too drastic happened. It’s a sour taste but I’m sure we’ll enjoy it when we’re back in the dressing room."

The Arsenal players understandably weren't happy with the situation and rushed over to defend their man of the match, especially due to an altercation with Richarlison.

After though, Mikel Arteta dragged them all away and got them instead to celebrate with the away fans, hilariously having to take extra care to remove Granit Xhaka from the situation.

Like the massive whopper that he is, Richard Keys somehow managed to blame the incident on Mikel Arteta's actions on the touchline.

The former Sky Sports presenter has long had a bee in his bonnet about the Arsenal manager being outside of his technical area for long periods of matches.

Arteta recently went mad at some referee decisions during the draw with Newcastle United and Keys used the Ramsdale incident as an excuse to bring up his favourite narrative, claiming the Spaniard's 'inflammatory behaviour' was to blame.
