David Luiz 'Almost Killed' N'Golo Kante And Didn't Get A Red Card
David Luiz was extremely lucky to escape a red card for a dangerous foul on N'Golo Kante.
The Arsenal defender recklessly followed through on Kante after clearing the ball and narrowly missed his head with his boot.
The French midfielder stood there and cut a confused figure as he remonstrated with Craig Pawson who failed to brandish a yellow or red card.
Luiz's challenge on Kante in the first half stunned users on social media.
Luiz tries to take Kante's head off with his studs right in front the referee, not even a foul.. unbelievable.

"David Luiz does this to Kante and Kante just stands there looking confused. If this was any other player they'd be crying for a foul on the floor or there'd be a brawl. The nicest man in football Kante is," one social media user wrote.
A second tweeted: "David Luiz is lucky that's Kante. Easily a Red Card. VAR bottles again."
A third added: "David Luiz cleared that ball with so much hate and disdain."
Another wrote: "From today David Luiz is no more a family. He nearly killed Kante. Intentional."
Meanwhile, Chelsea came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's first half header gave the hosts the lead. Jorginho leveled in the 83rd after tapping in from close range following a mistake from Bernd Leno.
Tammy Abraham then scored in the 87th minute to secure all three points for his side.
