Arsenal picked up a victory against Aston Villa over the weekend, but one incident certainly didn’t put the Gunners in the best light.

During the game, defender Sokratis tried to get Wesley sent off in an embarrassing show of simulation, and Villa fans certainly weren’t impressed.

Several Villa fans reacted to the incident on social media, with many calling the player’s actions embarrassing.

It’s certainly an embarssing look for Sokratis, and the Greek defender should surely know better.

It does bring up the question, why does VAR not look at things like this?

It’s an obvious dive, and surely he should get a punishment now.

Should Sokratis pick up a ban for this dive?

Yes

No
