Gary Neville has blasted David Luiz after he avoided punishment for his tackle on N’Golo Kante during Arsenal’s clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

During the closing stages of the first half at the Emirates Stadium, Luiz contested a 50-50 ball with Kante and the Brazilian followed through with a high boot which only narrowly missed the Chelsea midfielder’s body.

Referee Craig Pawson, who clearly saw the incident, opted not to give the Arsenal defender a yellow card for dangerous play.

And Neville slammed Luiz for his rash challenge on Kante, who turned to the referee to question why the Brazilian was not punished.

‘I have to say that’s unorthodox and stupid from David Luiz,’ Neville said during his commentary for Sky Sports.
