Tottenham star Cristian Romero swiftly deletes post criticising decision in Arsenal defeat

Tottenham star Cristian Romero swiftly deletes post criticising decision in Arsenal defeat

Tottenham Hotspur were beaten by Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham Hotspur star Cristian Romero reportedly deleted a post criticising a decision during their defeat against Arsenal.

On Sunday, Spurs welcomed local rivals Arsenal to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as they looked to dent the Gunners’ Premier League title charge.

However, Mikel Arteta’s men were in fine form as they raced to a 3-0 half-time lead thanks to goals from Bukayo Saka and Kai Havertz, plus an own goal by Pierre-Emile Hojberg.

In the second half, Spurs mounted a fightback as Romero and Son Heung Min scored but the Gunners held on for a 3-2 victory.

After the match, Romero appeared to show his frustration over Micky Van de Ven’s disallowed goal in the first half.

Pedro Porro’s long-range effort was deflected into the path of the Dutch defender but VAR eventually ruled the goal out for offside.

Reacting on social media, one fan wrote: “Am I going mad for thinking van de Ven is onside here? Tomiyasu hits the ball away from goal and into Gabriel who deflects it to the goalscorer. 2 contact from opposition players and we're still worried about the

original ball?”

To which Romero replied: “West Ham scored the same goal against us at home.”


However, Romero later deleted his response.

Speaking after the match, Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou was asked about the disallowed goal.

He said: “Games aren’t refereed in the stadium any more. I don’t celebrate goals any more.

“You've got to wait for somebody down the road. It’s a shame, I don’t like it, but I’ve got to accept it.”

Postecoglou continued: “It's a big day for our club and our fans, and we didn't get the outcome we wanted, so it's obviously very disappointing.

“We just lacked some focus today in key moments, particularly in the first half. Sometimes, you've got to feel the pain of it to learn that lesson properly.”
