Video – ESPN pundit brands Arsenal players reaction to Neal Maupay as ridiculous

One of the talking points from Arsenal’s defeat against Brighton this afternoon was the challenge from Neal Maupay on Bernd Leno that resulted in the German being stretchered off and most likely out of the game for a good few months.

It appears that the Arsenal players had carried their anger towards the Brighton match-winner right till the end of the game and confronted him at the final whistle, especially Matteo Guendouzi who grabbed Maupay by the throat.

It is a shame that the players never showed that sort of passion in the game and it is questionable whether they would have gone after the Brighton forward if Arsenal had won but that is one to be debated later.

ESPN’s Matt Ogden was not impressed with how the Arsenal players reacted. Watch the videos and listen to his comments and let me know in the comments below what you think of what Ogden had to say.

  1. Sadly, Guendouzi let himself down.

    Emotions would run high, but to me there is no excuse to behave like that. No-one wants to witness a nasty injury, but retaliation rarely helps. It certainly won’t help if he is censured for his behaviour. We are already in a difficult place without any more drama

  2. im not sure everyone saw what happened, though Matteo’s reaction was immature but what about the way Maupay fell down cheaply as a result of coming together with Matteo’s elbow just to earn a cheap free kick and probably yellow card to Matteo, it’s not fair to judge one and leave the other and Maupay’s comments about arsenal after the match is uncalled for
