    Guendouzi puts hand around Maupay’s throat in end of game spat

    Fans took to slam Matteo Guendouzi after he puts his hand around Neal Maupay’s throat in an end of game spat at the Amex Stadium.

    The Seaguls striker was targeted by Gunners players as they clashed on the pitch after Brighton came out victorious with a 2-1 win over the Gunners.

    Late on in the game, Guendouzi could be seen sticking out his fist as the Seagulls striker ran past him, prompting Maupay to drop to the ground theatrically.

    Moments later, the referee called time on the fixture, as players from both teams clashed on the pitch, which at the time saw Sky Sports play out the booing crowd noise.

    Guendouzi then appeared to put his hands around the throat of the Frenchman before Sead Kolasinac got involved in the ruckus.

    Officials quickly got the situation under control.

    Arsenal players were angry with Maupay for his part in Bernd Leno suffering a first-half injury. The keeper was forced off after falling awkwardly on his leg.

    The shot-stopper jumped to catch a ball floated into the box and was challenged in the air by Brighton striker Maupay.

    German keeper Leno’s leg buckled from under him as he landed, and he was forced off the pitch on a stretcher to receive treatment.

    As Leno was carried off the pitch he sat up on the stretcher and shouted at Maupay, as if blaming him for the injury.

    At half time on BT Sport Rio Ferdinand said: “You can’t blame Maupay for that, it’s a contact sport. It’s a foul but it’s not malicious nor excessive force, come on.”

    Peter Crouch added: “I think he’s left a bit on him there. I have been in that position myself where I’ve been a bit frustrated. He’s been a bit naughty there.”

    After the match Maupay apologised to Leno.

    He said: “I never meant to injure him so I’m really sorry for him and wish him a speedy recovery, but Arsenal players need to learn humility. They got what they deserved.”
