The Tottenham ahead appeared to disregard his Arsenal counterpart when Martinelli – who has about to take a nook – reached out to fist bump Richarlison earlier than he was introduced on as a late substitute.
Regardless of the north London derby largely favouring the house aspect in recent times, Spurs fell behind in meek vogue throughout a poor first-half.
A Hugo Lloris personal objective and Martin Odegaard gave Mikel Arteta’s aspect what turned out to be a routine win even regardless of a barely improved Spurs efficiency after the break.
“I’d wish to apologise to Martinelli,” Richarlison instructed ESPN.
“I instructed him he was diving lots, so I didn’t shake his hand.
“Additionally, with Gabriel Magalhaes, I instructed him they had been stopping play on a regular basis. I simply mentioned, ‘let’s play’.”
Arsenal now sit eight factors clear on the high of the Premier League whereas Antonio Conte’s face a battle to complete within the high 4.
The sport was marred by ugly scenes after the full-time whistle as a Tottenham fan appeared to kick out at Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
