Television cameras clearly showed the fan stood up on the advertising hoardings and aiming a kick at the stopper as he walked away from a clash with Spurs attacker Richarlison moments earlier, towards his water bottle behind the goal.
Speaking after the match, Ramsdale told Sky Sports that most of the back-and-forth between himself and the supporters behind the goal was good-natured, but one took exception and reacted, trying to connect with a kick.
“The Spurs fans are giving me some in the second half and I’ve given them some back,” he explained. “The few I did [interact with] were well greeted sportsman-wise, then one fan jumped over and tried to punch me in the back.
“I think both sets of players tried to bring me away, thankfully nothing happened too drastically but it’s a sour taste. I’m sure we’ll enjoy it back in the dressing room.”
In terms of the match itself, Ramsdale added that the Gunners were fully deserving of the points.
“Totally [in control], we probably deserved a bit more. That’s what I’m there to do. The manager also mentioned the last few derbies we haven’t kept a clean sheet so that might have spurred me on.”
