Crowd trouble that took place at the end of Arsenal’s win over Burnley at Turf Moor is to be investigated by the FA.

Taking place in the Ladbrokes Stand, which accommodates both home and away fans, clearly without adequate measures to keep them apart, rival supporters clashed as they headed for the exits as you can see in the video below:

As a result, The FA are set to investigate how this was able to happen (can I refer them to the above seating arrangements of the Ladbrokes stand for a game between Burnley and Arsenal).

Seating was ripped up, tore apart and used as missiles along with plastic bottles, although ‘calm’ was restored in a few minutes.

Still, there is likely to be a fine heading Burnley’s way as the policing of the crowd is, ultimately, their responsibility as the home side.
