Rio Ferdinand, on the other hand, felt Gabriel Magalhaes didn’t need to tackle Richalison in the box because he wasn’t going to pose a threat with his weaker foot.
On BT Sport, he stated:
‘If you are Mikel Arteta you are saying to Gabriel – stay on your feet. There is no need to dive in in that situation, he is on his weaker foot. You would be very frustrated.”
