Richarlison lashes out at Tomiyasu in unseen clip as subs clash warming up

Tottenham forward Richarlison was spotted smacking the hand of Arsenal's Takehiro Tomiyasu during a warm-up before he clashed with Aaron Ramsdale after the full-time whistle.

The Brazil international was stood next to his Japanese counterpart during Sunday's Premier League contest with Thomas Partey lining up a throw-in – putting his hands up to complain to the ref.

Seconds later, after Tomiyasu put his arm out to block the 25-year-old, it was struck away with an open palm as the Arsenal man remained calm and ignored the actions.

With a third fan saying: "What is his problem lol."

Richarlison came on in the 71st minute for Matt Doherty but couldn't have the desired impact with an own goal from Hugo Lloris and a strike from Martin Odegaard going unanswered.

The forward was back in camera shot after full time for pushing Aaron Ramsdale after an exchange of words, before the England international was kicked by a Spurs fan.

Following that, Spurs have said in a statement: "We are appalled by the behaviour of a supporter that attempted to attack Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at the end of today’s match.

"Violence in any form has no place in football.

“The club has reviewed its CCTV footage to identify the supporter and will be working with the Met Police, Arsenal and Aaron Ramsdale to take the strongest possible action, including an immediate ban from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium."
