Following Sunday’s north London derby, the Metropolitan Police have revealed that they have charged a 35-year-old fan with assaulting Aaron Ramsdale.

Arsenal ran out comfortable 2-0 winners against Tottenham on Sunday courtesy of first-half goals from Martin Odegaard and an own goal from Hugo Lloris.

After the game, Ramsdale was seen kissing the Arsenal badge when things took a somewhat unpleasant turn as substitute confronted him. A group of angry Tottenham rushed the Gunners’ starting goalkeeper as he went to fetch his water bottle and towel from behind the goal. One of them jumped onto the advertising panel and kicked Ramsdale.

Joseph Watts, 35, from Hackney, northeast London, has now been charged with assault by beating, going onto an area adjacent to playing area and throwing a missile onto the playing area. He is set to appear at Highbury Magistrates’ Court on 17th February.
