Aaron Ramsdale looked to have brought down Matej Vydra, but the contact was deemed minimal by Anthony Taylor who went over to the pitch-side monitor to have a look at the incident. This incident seemed to have angered the Burnley fans who had thought their side would get an opportunity of equalizing which didn’t materialize and they vented their frustrations at the Gunners’ fans who had come into the stadium.
Arsenal’s match correspondent, Chris Wheatley posted video footage of the whole incident on his official Twitter account and it clearly showed the two sets of fans angrily march towards each other at the away end of the ground in Turf Moor.
