Matteo Guendouzi appeared to violently grab the neck of match-winner Neal Maupay when the final whistle blew, the striker scored a last-gasp winner for Brighton.
Maupay was undoubtedly annoyed after Guendouzi’s actions, he was restrained by a couple of Arsenal stars, the incident then sparked a mass scuffle between the two sides.
Surprisingly Guendouzi went all quiet after his cheap shot and as players separated the pair, as well as the referee coming over to diffuse the situation, he clearly didn’t keep that same energy.
Hard-man Sead Kolasinac did manage to calm Maupay down and both sets of players headed down the tunnel soon after.
Take a look at the scuffle below:
Another crazy ending! ?
