Video: Christian Benteke somehow escapes red card for violent conduct towards Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny

Should Christian Benteke have seen red for Crystal Palace against Arsenal for violent conduct towards Mohamed Elneny? 

Though tonight’s clash between Crystal Palace and Arsenal is pretty inconsequential, with neither team having anything substantial to play for, that’s not stopped tensions flaring at Selhurst Park.

After a coming together between Christian Benteke and Mohamed Elneny, the Palace striker appeared to raise his hand in the direction of Elneny’s face, which usually results in a red card being shown.

However, after a VAR review, the decision was made to uphold the on the field decision, which was to book both players.

Jamie Mackie, Jeff Stelling and Arsenal legend Paul Merson were all in agreement while covering the game Sky Sports News – Benteke should have been sent off, and VAR has made a mistake here.

PGMOL and the Premier League need to sit down in the summer and sort out the absolute state of these inconsistencies. It’s happening in virtually every game, and fans are beginning to tire of it.

  1. I think we should learn to forgive and forget. Yes Benteke elbowed our Elneny but it’s over and done with and I find the whingeing about it tiresome. There are other important issues that needs talking about than that. There is for instance our manager persistence with selling players that our club needs. It appears Arteta is so novice he can’t see a good player in front of him. In case you wonder who and how then I say Martinez was sold for a teenager to Villa and he is doing well- in fact brilliant. They won.2-1 away against the Yids yesterday.
    That lad had been in our academy while.Arteta played for us and yet was unable to see his brilliance. Need more?
