Danny Murphy has criticised Aaron Ramsdale for his celebrations in front of Bruno Fernandes after the Manchester United star missed a penalty against Arsenal on Saturday.

Nuno Tavares was adjudged to have handled the ball with the game at 2-1 in the second-half of a 3-1 win at the Emirates, although Fernandes’ tame effort hit the post.

Tavares had opened the scoring before Bukayo Saka hit a successful spot-kick with only Cristiano Ronaldo’s 100th Premier League coming in response.

Arsenal, who moved two points ahead of bitter rivals Tottenham over the course of what could be a pivotal weekend in the Champions League race, have consistently been criticised for their celebrations this season.

Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves claimed watching Mikel Arteta’s players celebrate after a late win at Molineux in February was “like they won the league” while pundit Gabby Agbonlahor said it was like Arsenal had “won the Champions League” following a victory at Aston Villa.

Speaking on talkSPORT, former Liverpool and England midfielder Murphy said: “I always think when you’re getting too emotionally involved you’re detracting from your own performance.

‘When you start getting to the Martin Keown in [Ruud] Van Nistelrooy’s face or Ramsdale jumping out [against United], I think you’re losing the plot a little bit. It’s all a bit for fans.

‘I understand it. If I was his manager I’d be saying, “Don’t do that again”.
