Fans think the Tottenham supporter who kicked Aaron Ramsdale is actually Jay from 'The Inbetweeners'

The internet has, and always will, remain undefeated.
People think the Tottenham supporter who kicked Aaron Ramsdale is The Inbetweeners star Jay's doppelgänger.
And to be fair, they do look scarily alike.
Football fans and pundits alike have wasted no time in weighing in on the ugly scenes that unfolded after Arsenal's 2-0 over Tottenham in the North London Derby.
After the referee blew the whistle for full-time, Aaron Ramsdale was kicked by a Spurs fan who had leaps onto the advertisement hoarding while the Arsenal goalkeeper was attempting to retrieve his water bottle from behind the goal.
The incident was truly shocking and it seems social media sleuths have been quick in mocking up various memes about it.
But one, above all, is pure genius.
"Can't go down Spurs no more. Banned aren't I. Last time I was there for the North London Derby I ended up having a straightener with Aaron Ramsdale. Took his head clean off with a roundhouse kick" pic.twitter.com/2Zfvu34vMb— Eugene (@eugeneh84) January 15, 2023
A Twitter user has hilariously compared the blonde-haired, curtains-sporting Spurs supporter to Jay Cartwright from 'The Inbetweeners'.
Not only does the split image of the two individuals scream 'lookalike', but it's the caption which does it for us.
"Can't go down Spurs no more. Banned aren't I. Last time I was there for the North London Derby I ended up having a straightener with Aaron Ramsdale. Took his head clean off with a roundhouse kick," the caption read.
There's a good reason why the tweet has already racked up 675,000 views and 15,000 likes in just a few hours.
And if you scour through social media, there's hundreds of other tweets pointing out the stark similarities between the duo.

As for Ramsdale himself, he'd undoubtedly have a little chuckle once he sees this belter.
Ramsdale was even quizzed by Sky Sports after the game, with Geoff Shreeves asking him how it all unfolded.
"A fan tried to jump over and give me a little punch in the back. Its a shame because its just a game of football at the end of the day," he told Sky Sports after the game.
"Thankfully nothing too bad happened."
As for the FA, they didn't see the funny side of things.
"We strongly condemn the incident involving a spectator that followed today's Premier League fixture between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal," the sport's governing body said in a statement.
"This is wholly unacceptable behaviour and we will work together with the police, the relevant authorities and the clubs to ensure the appropriate action is taken."
