Arsenal’s Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu was exposed to a dangerous ‘killer tackle’.

Luckily, he escaped injury. But Chelsea’s Nicholas Jackson, who inflicted the harm, was at the center of controversy.

Arsenal won the 29th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) season with a 5-0 victory over Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium in London, England, on Thursday (April 24).

Jackson’s controversial tackle came in the ninth minute of the first half. Jackson stamped on Domijas’ ankle with his studs after the ball was played through. Domiyas went down in pain. But Jackson didn’t receive a yellow card, let alone a red.

Fans reacted by calling it a “red card tackle.
