Arsenal’s clash against Liverpool stopped after pitch invader HANDCUFFS himself to goal post

ARSENAL’S clash with Liverpool was temporarily halted when a pitch invader tried to HANDCUFF himself to the goalposts.

The bizarre incident took place in the hour mark of the Premier League clash at the Emirates as an attention-seeking fan made it past security and entered the pitch.

The man – who wore a white T-shirt of a website on which he wrote ‘Just stop oil’ – tried to tie himself up on one of the posts and left Reds goalkeeper Alisson baffled as he stood nearby.

The Brazil international signalled to referee Andre Mariner, who paused the game as stewards attended to the matter at hand.

The security team managed to swiftly escort the trespasser out of the pitch despite some struggle.

The man was then recorded lying on his stomach in the surrounding area as stewards waited for him to get back up to his feet while the game resumed.

Roberto Firmino doubled the Merseysiders’ lead when he flicked the ball home from Andy Robertson’s cross after 62 minutes.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are now just one point away from high-flyers Manchester City.

Liverpool are scheduled to face City in what promises to be a Prem title showdown on April 10 at the Etihad.

Arsenal, on the other hand, remain fourth with two games in hand and are thus in pole position for a top-four finish.

That would see the Gunners return to the Champions League, despite their worst ever Premier League start earlier this season.
