Ramsdale bickered with opponent Richarlison at the end of the game and the forward angrily pushed the keeper in the side of the head.

As a steward led the England international away to the edge of the pitch, a supporter sat in the Tottenham section kicked the shot stopper.

Players from both sides then ran over to try and diffuse the tensed situation.

But Spurs have taken immediate action by condemning the fan’s behaviour and vowed to issue an “immediate ban”.

Tottenham released the following 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.”

Ramsdale put together a stunning performances against Tottenham and kept a clean sheet for Arsenal.

And the 24-year-old addressed the incident during a post-match interview.

Ramsdale said: “The Spurs fans were giving me some stick in the second half and I gave them some back.

“To the few I did do it to it was probably well-greeted sportsmanship like but then a fan jumped over and gave me a little punch in the back.

“That’s what happened and it is a shame because it’s just a game of football at the end of the day.

“Both sets of players tried to bring me away, thankfully nothing happened too drastic.

“It is a sour taste but I am sure we will enjoy it when we go back to the dressing room.”
