Fans Think Jamie Vardy Intentionally Kicked Shkodran Mustafi In The Face
The former England striker had a bit of a clash with Mustafi at the end of the first half, with the German seen clutching his face.
Replays showed that Vardy caught Mustafi square in the face with his boot and it looked as though the movement of his leg wasn't exactly natural.
Vardy was not even shown a yellow card, the incident wasn't referred to VAR and angry Arsenal fans were adamant that they he ought to have received his marching orders.
Arsenal were leading 1-0 at the time and saw substitute striker Eddie Nketiah sent off in the 74th minute after VAR ruled his challenge on James Justin to have been dangerous.
To make matters worse, 10-man Arsenal would concede a goal six minutes from time through Vardy - with plenty feeling as though the Foxes frontman was actually offside and VAR got the decision wrong.
Var checked this line once, then proceeded to look at a completely pointless second onside for Perez. Vardy is offside, how can they miss this pic.twitter.com/sHR6onA78w- 4 The Arsenal (@4TheArsenal_) July 7, 2020

Vardy left a boot print on Mustafi's face. How is this allowed?

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta concurred that his team had been hard done by speaking his post-match interview.
"It can be a red card but then Leicester have to play with 10 men," Arteta told Sky Sports.
"For an incident that happened between the 40th and 45th minute, it has to be a red card as well."
