Arsenal secured a vital 2-0 triumph over bitter rivals Manchester United to increase their chances of reaching the Champions League promotion
Granit Xhaka outmaneuvered David de Gea, curling home a sublime effort outside the box to put the Gunners in front in the 12th minute.
In the 69th minute, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted a spot-kick to seal Arsenal’s victory that saw them leapfrog the Red Devils to the fourth place.
However, an incident that followed the Gabonese’ goal has unfortunately highlighted this massive Premier League showdown.
One of Arsenal’s fans rushed onto the pitch to celebrate the goal with the players and confront Chris Smalling along the way before the stewards accompanied him off the ground.
It was the second time this sort of incident happened in England on Sunday after the one that took place at the St. Andrew’s Stadium.
Unlike the intrusion at the Emirates Stadium, the one that occurred in the Championship encounter between Birmingham and Aston Villa had a very different connotation.
The unpleasant scene involving the Blues’ fan and Jack Grealish was something England authorities thought to have eradicated long ago.
The intruded has approached Aston Villa star from the back and hit him in the head before being taken off the field by the stewards.
