Arsenal fans and Ray Parlour fuming Son Heung-min was not sent off for 'elbow' on Rob Holding that went unpunished

RAY PARLOUR led the Arsenal fans' fury as Son Heung-min went unpunished for an alleged "elbow" on Rob Holding.

The Gunners supporters were left furious as their side capitulated at White Hart Lane, falling to a 3-0 defeat in the crunch clash in the race for the top four.


Hot-headed Holding headed for an early bath after picking up two yellow cards with just 33 minutes on the clock, the second for a needless swipe at Son.

But many wearing red-tinted specs reckon Son should not have been on the field – as he deserved a red card after just 11 minutes.

Terrified Holding tugged Son to the ground and ended up getting into a wrestling match.

And as the Spurs man's frustration grew, some claim he threw an elbow at the Arsenal defender.

Neither player was penalised for the grappling – but Holding did pick up his first yellow for a similar tussle.

However, Parlour believes VAR should have intervened for the early incident and instructed Paul Tierney to send the South Korean off.

He told talkSPORT: "When he was on the floor, I think this was the first one, he was holding onto him, and he just gave him a little elbow.

"I don’t know if you saw it. No one saw it, to be fair.

"Maybe that’s a reason he was a little bit highly strung through the game, Holding, because he got an elbow."

And plenty of Arsenal fans jumped in to agree.

One said: "Add it to the list of ones VAR are blind to when it comes to us."

Another wrote: "Ahahahaha lol getting ridiculous now."

A third added: "He isn't off because Holding doesn't roll around on the floor crying."

Son rubbed salt into Mikel Arteta's wounds as he scored the third and final goal of a comprehensive Spurs victory after Harry Kane's double.

Holding's red card and Gabriel limping off injured means the Arsenal boss could end up fielding a makeshift defence for Monday's must-win trip to Newcastle.
