Arsenal fans won’t be in the greatest mood to start the week, having drawn the North London derby with Tottenham and missing the chance to move top of the Premier League table, and one opposition player has been the focus for Gooners venting their frustration.
Spurs midfielder Victor Wanyama was described by Arsene Wenger has being fortunate to stay on the pitch, with a number of cynical fouls in the game but, rather incredibly, the Kenyan international wasn’t even booked by Mark Clattenburg.
That was despite pictures showing his elbow in Theo Walcott’s face twice and a late challenge on Olivier Giroud, which came moments after Laurent Koscielny was booked for a far weaker tackle at the other head.
Naturally, Arsenal fans were quick to pick up on the situation and have been venting on social media ever since- although some took the opportunity to have a quick dig at the player, rather than see red themselves.
Wanyama makes Coquelin look like Pirlo. Horrible footballer who was lucky to stay on the pitch.

Pochettino was smart to loan Wanyama from the NFL

Clattenburg having a stinker. Giroud pulled to the ground every time no FK. Wanyama elbowing throughout. One team winning everything.

Baffled as to how Wanyama hasn't been cautioned yet. And not the once.

Koscielny booked for getting the ball, Wanyama not booked for kicking everybody

Wanyama should have been sent off 8 times by now.

Wanyama penalised for four fouls, straight through the back of Giroud just then – still no card.

Wanyama's living a charmed life in this Arsenal- Spurs game. Mark Clattenburg's letting him do what he likes.

Still unsure as to how Wanyama wasn't booked yesterday
