Watch Harry Kane's brutal challenge on Gabriel as Arsenal fans question why VAR didn't send Spurs star off in derby

March 14, 2021

ARSENAL fans were left frustrated by the referee's decision not to send Harry Kane off in the north London derby.

The 27-year-old made a shocking challenge on Gabriel during Tottenham's 2-1 loss.



As the Arsenal defender played the ball, Kane made a late challenge.

The England captain was nowhere near the ball as he brutally clattered into the 23-year-old.

Gabriel did not appear to pick up an injury and completed the 90 minutes.

Referee Michael Oliver did not punish Kane for the challenge, who deserved at least a yellow, and VAR did not check it.

Arsenal fans were frustrated with the lack of punishment, with one calling Oliver's decision a 'disgrace' on Twitter.

Another tweeted: "Harry Kane is such a dirty player and has always been."

It's not the first time the Tottenham striker has risked injuring Gabriel.

In the reverse fixture in December, Kane backed into the Brazilian while he was heading the ball – a cynical move that could cause a serious neck or head injury.

Although the Englishman didn't receive a red, Erik Lamela did as Arsenal secured the bragging rights.

Earlier today former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger joked Kane made the wrong decision when he chose Tottenham over Arsenal as a youngster.
