New footage shows the exact moment a Tottenham fan jumped over the barrier and kicked Aaron Ramsdale, sparking a huge hand-to-hand fight at the end of a fiery north London derby… with police and the FA investigating the shocking incident
Footage has emerged of the Tottenham Hotspur end showing the moment Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale was tackled by a fan after kick-off in the north London derby after the Gunners beat their fiercest rivals 2-0.
At the final whistle of Sunday’s clash, Ramsdale made his way back to the Spurs fans to get his water bottle before a fan made his way onto the pitch and appeared to land a kick at the goalkeeper.
Ramsdale were outraged after the violent actions of Spurs fans as tempers flared at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the club braced for an FA and police investigation into the fans’ actions.

Arsenal beat Spurs away in the first half to lead 2-0 at the break and although the home side hit back in the second half they were unable to break through the Gunners’ defence.

And although the lively affair was largely kept in check by the referee, the tension boiled over by the end of the game.
As the clock ticked after the five minutes added, Ramsdale could be seen laughing and exchanging words with an angry-looking Richarlison, something the Brazilian clearly didn’t appreciate.
He then approached the keeper and was seen putting his hands on the England international’s face as he headed back to his goal to get his water bottle, before a fan added to the tension by walking off turned into a playing field.
With a scarf tied around his face, perhaps to disguise her identity, the fan weaved his way down several rows of his fellow fans and appeared to kick Ramsdale from atop the barriers, seemingly venting their frustration at the England star following a defeat against his bitter rivals.
The goalkeeper whirled around in surprise and was quickly dragged away by the stewards, who also pushed the fan back into the crowd to prevent further action.

Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka then approached the cordons and yelled at the supporter, who eagerly climbed up the stands to his seat, pulled the scarf over the lower part of his face and headed for the exit.
The rest of the Arsenal side then made their way to hustle the stewards and referee before several Spurs players joined the melee, with Richarlison being forcibly removed, perhaps to prevent further action being taken from him .
The melee lasted around 30 seconds before the jubilant Arsenal players left for the away game to celebrate in front of their own visiting fans, who had made the short journey across north London.
