Antonio Conte Must Sever Ties With Emerson Royal Following Arsenal’s Humiliation

Published

on

Tottenham Hotspur’s perfect start to the 2022/23 Premier League season ended on Saturday afternoon when Arsenal defeated Antonio Conte’s team 3-1 at The Emirates. Even the most adamant Spurs supporters would acknowledge that the Gunners were the superior team on the day.

One player’s conduct had a significant role in Tottenham’s final defeat. And if you were lucky to predict that and made a bet at , then you have gained a lot.

What Happened?

Indeed, with the Lilywhites trying for a way back into the game at the 62-minute mark, Emerson Royal carelessly surged in on Gabriel Martinelli, hitting the Brazilian on the ankle and earning his marching orders from Anthony Taylor.

In reality, the wing-back had been having a bad day before to his dismissal, having lost the ball eight times, been beaten twice, and lost six of his ten duels – a failure rate of 60%.

We doubt that this could have been expected by anyone to bet on it at casinos from the lists. Of course, if we could predict the failure and know some football bettig tips, then we could monetize the game outcome. 

However, his incredible, wreckless challenge on a player rushing towards his goal ensured the 23-year-old would take the lion’s share of the blame for Spurs’ defeat in the north London derby, with the media losing no time in heaping criticism on the wing-back.

Tottenham great Clive Allen was enraged by the defender’s challenge, telling talkSPORT that he believed Emerson had jeopardized Spurs’ chances of winning the game – a conviction that proved right.

“That is an absurd challenge,” Allen stated. “Raises his boot, six studs, and he’s just jeopardized his club’s whole game in this north London derby. Emerson doesn’t play it near the ball; he just tosses Martinelli’s knees out from under him. It’s a terrible, dumb challenge, and referee Anthony Taylor makes the correct call. That is insane.”

Former Arsenal winger Perry Groves was also displeased with Emerson’s challenge, adding that the 57-year-old may have broken his compatriot’s ankle. “At first glance, I thought it was just a vacation with nothing in it,” Groves explained to talkSPORT. “But, on second thought, it’s studs up – that’s an ankle breaker.”

The Athletic’s Jack Pitt-Brooke was not about to let the £35m-rated defender off the hook for his challenge, labelling the tackle “pointless.”

As a result, given that Emerson’s 5.7 rated performance against Arsenal was just the latest in a long line of below-par performances in a Tottenham shirt following the Brazilian’s three-match suspension, Conte must simply drop the 23-year-old from his starting XI – as Saturday concretely demonstrated that defender is more of a liability than anything else for Spurs.
