'Not the first time' - Arsenal fans all noticed what Harry Kane did to Gabriel during North London derby, they're furious

'Not the first time' - Arsenal fans all noticed what Harry Kane did to Gabriel during North London derby, they're furious

Arsenal fans were left enraged with Harry Kane in the North London derby after the Spurs striker went unpunished for a challenge on Gabriel

Arsenal fans were left angered by Harry Kane after his cynical challenge on Gabriel in the North London derby went unpunished.

Arsenal ran out 3-1 winners on the day thanks to goals from Thomas Partey, Gabriel Jesus and Granit Xhaka but it was a challenge from Kane that left some supporters incensed as he managed to avoid any punishment. In a 50-50 tussle for the ball, the Gunners' Brazilian defender tumbled as Kane knees him in the back, and, once he hit the floor, Kane kicked out at him as he fell over too.

It was a challenge that was not spotted or acted upon though, as referee Anthony Taylor and VAR did not deem the infringement serious enough to bring back play for in order to punish Kane.

Partey had given Arsenal the lead before Kane equalised from the spot. The Gunners then took the lead through Jesus, and Spurs wing-back Emerson Royal was sent off before Arsenal doubled their lead through Xhaka.

The Kane challenge on Gabriel happened after all the major events, though it did not stop Arsenal fans from getting frustrated and questioning the referee.

Gooners were bemused by referee Taylor's decision not to intervene and have not forgotten past North London derbies where Kane has got away with other similarly cynical challenges, in which he has almost always got away with it.

And so this is not the first time this topic of conversation has come from Arsenal fans online as a result, with tweets from previous North London derbies proving their long-held view that Kane earns preferential treatment from referees.

It is clear that Arsenal fans have felt hard done by in recent meetings when it comes to Kane's physicality, with some even suggesting the theory that he is exempt from proper punishment due to his role as England captain.

Despite all of this, Kane always seems to score against Arsenal and added to his tally in this fixture again at the weekend, even in defeat. His converted penalty took his tally in North London derbies to a total of 14 goals in just 18 games, and also propelled him above Thierry Henry (43 goals) to 44 goals in all London derbies.
