Fans Can't Understand Why Alexandre Lacazette Wasn't Sent Off Vs Leeds
Alexandre Lacazette kicked out at Gaetano Berardi last night and fans can't understand why he wasn't sent off.
Arsenal defeated Leeds United 1-0 in the FA Cup third round clash but a big talking point was Lacazette's interaction with Berardi.
The Frenchman had been involved in a tussle with the defender and proceeded to kick the back of his leg as he jogged off.
VAR checked the incident but concluded there was not enough in the challenge for a red card.
It's rather bizarre considering some of the red cards given out in this season's Premier League for far less.
Twitter reacted to the incident and all agreed the 28-year-old should have received his marching orders.
