David Luiz got away with a vicious challenge on N’Golo Kante during Arsenal vs Chelsea in the Premier league at the Emirates.
Chelsea scripted a fabulous come from behind victory to beat London rivals Arsenal 2-1. However, in the process, they almost lost star midfielder N’Golo Kante to a brutal kick from Arsenal centre back David Luiz.
Just before the stroke of half-time, Luiz recklessly followed through on Kante after clearing the ball and just missed the Frenchman’s head. Kante cut a forlorn figure as he stood there wondering how the referee had not flashed either the Red or even yellow card.

David Luiz does this to Kante and Kante just stands there looking confused. If this was any other player they’d be crying for a foul on the floor or there’d be a brawl. The nicest man in football Kante is! #ARSCHE #chelsea pic.twitter.com/GfG4iT8Dbz

Didn’t you see how David Luiz wanted to chop off Kante’s head but nobody commented. Besides you were trash in the 2nd half. Collect your L. https://t.co/1Ylb4HFRTQ
