(Video) Aubameyang lucky to escape booking after shocking tackle on Fernandes

Mike Dean has finally handed out some yellow cards but how on earth did Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang get away with this?

Aubameyang is not one renowned for his defensive work or tackling, and that was evident when he lunged at Bruno Fernandes in the first-half at Old Trafford.

The scoreline is still 0-0 and United are slowly beginning to grow into the game.

The incident saw Fernandes pick up the ball in midfield before turning and attempting a cross.

But Aubameyang went in from behind before Fernandes connected with the ball.

The referee gave a free-kick but left the striker away with no booking.

It wasn’t the first poor tackle from an Arsenal player since kick-off. Rob Holding has been booked since blatantly obstructing Marcus Rashford.
