Arsenal fans should have walked away from White Hart Lane with their heads held high last night, having beaten rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 to reach the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.
However, instead many ‘supporters’ left the stadium under cloud of shame after clashing with stewards and tearing up signage in the South Stand.
Gunners fans are now facing a possible police and Football Association investigation, according to The Telegraph.
On the pitch, Mathieu Flamini was Arsenal’s surprise hero. The forgotten Frenchman scored two goals, both of which came after mistakes from clumsy Spurs centre-back Federico Fazio.
However, Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino jumped to the defence of his error-prone countryman.
“No, I don’t regret playing Fazio,” FourFourTwo quote Pochettino as saying.
“You can make the mistakes and in football it always happens. They are not machines.
“Today he played because he deserved to play and afterwards you can play well or not. This is football and it’s not boring because you never know.
“Always you need to make a decision and I think it was the right decision. But maybe when you lose it’s not the right decision, and you understand this is the game.”
