Some Arsenal fans on Twitter are reacting to an incident involving Emiliano Martinez in Aston Villa’s victory over Newcastle United on Saturday.

Aston Villa, who signed the Argentina international from the Gunners last summer, claimed their first Premier League win of the season, winning 2-0 over Steve Bruce’s side at Villa Park.

But much of the post-match talk has focused on a controversial incident between the former Arsenal goalkeeper and Callum Wilson.

In the second half, Martinez left his line and slammed into the Newcastle hitman, conceding a penalty in the process.

But the decision was overturned after images indicated an offside in the preparation, saving the South American an almost certain red card.

Here’s how some Arsenal fans react:

Leno-esque

The incident bears a striking resemblance to the red card Bernd Leno received for North Londoners in a loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this year.

Since Martinez joined Aston Villa he is arguably the best and most consistent goalkeeper in the Premier League.

But the 29-year-old is also capable of a rash decision and whether or not he gets punished, Saturday proved it.
