Arsenal fan arrested after shining a laser into Mudryk’s face

by John Ocholi

An Arsenal fan has been arrested after Mykhailo Mudryk had a laser shone in his eyes during the Gunners’ 3-1 victory over Chelsea on Monday.

The winger was named amongst the substitutes, with Frank Lampard turning to him from the bench as Chelsea fell to a sixth consecutive defeat.

Mudryk, a former target for Arsenal in the Janaury transfer window, impressed with his direct running at Mikel Arteta’s defence but was targeted by a laser throughout the match.

Now, an Arsenal fan has been arrested for shining this in the face of the Ukraine international, the club confirmed.

An Arsenal statement confirmed: ‘An arrest has been made following the use of a laser during last night’s match.

‘This behaviour is dangerous and totally unacceptable, and we will fully support the police with their enquiries.

We will obviously take the strongest possible action.’

It’s understood the FA are looking into the incident.

Mudryk took to Instagram after the match to deliver a two-word response to the incident.

Posting a picture of himself with a laser on him, Mudryk wrote: ‘It’s ok’.

Since his response, the arrest has been made and it is unclear as to the severity of the charge.

Mudryk has struggled since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in January, making just 12 Premier League appearances and failing to score yet.

The 22-year-old looked destined for a move to Arsenal in the winter transfer window before the Blues acted quickly to hijack the deal.

The winger will be hopeful of turning his form around when Chelsea bring in a new head coach, with Mauricio Pochettino the firm favourite after talks.
