“The [Spurs] fans were giving me some [stick] throughout the second half. I gave some back,” Ramsdale said.

“The few people I did do it to were well greeted and sportsmanship like. Then a fan jumped over and gave me a little punch in the back.

“That’s what happened and it’s a shame because it’s just a game of football at the end of the day.”

He added: “Both sets of players tried to bring me away. But thankfully nothing actually happened too drastic. It’s a sour taste but I’m sure we’ll enjoy it when we’re back in the dressing room.”

What did Jamie Redknapp say about Tottenham fan kicking Aaron Ramsdale?

Jamie Redknapp was working as a pundit for Sky Sports and he called for Spurs to ban the supporter.

“It’s completely unacceptable from the Spurs fan. He’s [Ramsdale] been getting stick all game and reacts – gives them a bit of stick back,” he said.

“Richarlison gets involved. This is part of football.

“But for a fan to come on and do that and try and kick a player on the pitch is completely unacceptable. He’s got to get his water bottle and gloves.

“I’m sure Spurs will act accordingly. He shouldn’t be allowed in a football stadium that guy. It’s completely out of order and unacceptable.”
