Tottenham ace Richarlison escapes FA punishment for North London derby bust-up with Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale

SPURS striker Richarlison will NOT face any FA action for his North London derby bust-up with Aaron Ramsdale.

Richarlison confronted Ramsdale when the England keeper responded to taunts from home fans by pointing to his Arsenal crest at the final whistle of Sunday’s 2-0 win.

He appeared to thrust his palm towards Ramsdale and make contact twice, although the Arsenal star shrugged it off.

Seconds later, Ramsdale was attacked by a thug from the home end who kicked him as he was retrieving his water bottle.

Some Arsenal fans were calling for disciplinary action against Richarlison, arguing he had committed an act of violent conduct that should have brought a red card and three match ban.


But the FA disciplinary department has determined the entire incident was both seen and managed by the on-field officials and the VAR team at Stockley Park.

Given the reality of what happened, disciplinary beaks have agreed there is no evidence to suggest that retrospective disciplinary action for any possible red card offence is necessary.

Richarlison will be hoping his football will do the talking against Manchester City this evening.

The Brazil international hasn’t scored a Prem goal since his summer move from Everton.

He enjoyed a fine World Cup, netting three times in four games, but his only club goals this season came back in September against Marseille in the Champions League.

But Spurs are in poor form ahead of their daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium and are five points behind fourth.

Tottenham did beat the reigning champions twice last season though, including a 3-2 victory in Manchester thanks to Harry Kane’s injury-time header.
