The challenge was almost identical to the one that saw the Gabon striker issued with a red card against Crystal Palace last season.

And Arsenal fans were enraged that Berge stayed on the pitch, as one tweeted: "That Berge tackle on @Aubameyang7 surely is a red card."

Another vented: "How the f*** has Berge NOT got a red card for that tackle on Aubameyang?!

"He jumped off the ground and went studs first into his ankle."

A third added: "Auba got sent off for the same thing against Palace."

Meanwhile one remarked: "Of course, this is clear red card, but unfortunately Auba plays for Arsenal."

One simply stated: "That’s a very clear red card. Even a blind ref should be giving that."



Thankfully for Arsenal fans, Aubameyang managed to finish the clash as the Gunners narrowly edged out the Blades.

Bukayo Saka broke the deadlock with a header in the second half, with Nicolas Pepe doubling the hosts' lead with a curling strike into the far corner.

David McGoldrick pulled a goal back late on, but the North Londoners held out to claim their third win Premier League win of the season.
