Manchester United followers are calling for Gabriel Jesus to face motion from the FA after footage was uncovered of the Brazilian kicking out at Lisandro Martinez throughout Arsenal’s defeat to the Purple Devils on Sunday.
The Gunners noticed their 100% begin to the season come to an finish on Sunday with a 3-1 defeat to Erik ten Hag’s aspect on the Theatre of Desires.
Gooners have been incandescent at Paul Tierney’s officiating through the defeat, significantly at his leniency in the direction of Scott McTominay.
Mikel Arteta was livid within the aftermath of the defeat, calling for extra consistency from the officers and describing the choice to disallow Martinelli’s purpose as ‘very mushy’.
However United followers have uncovered footage from the match that has given them their very own serving of bitter grapes.
With United main 1-0 following Antony’s opener, Martinez is seen backing into Jesus within the Purple Devils’ penalty space.
Jesus then takes a transparent swipe at Martinez, with the Brazilian clearly sad with what he perceives to be sly ways from the Argentine.
The off-the-ball incident was not observed by the officers, nor by VAR.
Had the incident been seen, Jesus would doubtless have acquired a pink card for the kick and Arsenal would have been down to 10 males for the remaining 50 minutes.
