Francis Coquelin! Why you did that, ask Arsenal fans
The French mid-fielder was sent off for a foul on Harry Kane in the 55th minute of the match.
New Delhi: Arsenal fans on Saturday admonished Francis Coquelin for his red-card in the crucial London derby match against Tottenham Hotspur.
The French mid-fielder, already in the referee's book, chopped down Harry Kane in the 55th minute of the match. His sending off not only allowed Spurs to equalise but take control of the match by scoring the lead, with both the goals coming within seven minutes of his send-off.
The match, however, ended on 2-2, but fans have expressed their reservations about the 24-year-old's decision making. Here are some of the tweets:
Coquelin just lost Arsenal the title

Play well for 50 mins and then Coquelin ruins it for everyone. Utterly shameful.

If Arsenal lose this Coquelin will rightly get the headlines. Absolute muppet.

Coquelin could very well have cost Arsenal the title.
