Fans were heard applauding the dismissal of Pulisic, with one fan saying ‘yes, that’s their number one gone’ while another voice in the crowd was heard saying ‘hamstring injury, ta da…wanker’.
Though, host Robbie Lyle refused to join in with the celebrations, saying: ‘I never celebrate an injury.’

WARNING – EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
The clip has since been shared across social media and other Arsenal supporters were quick to dissociate themselves from those seen on the fan TV, with many saying their behaviour was a ‘disgrace’ and ‘absolutely diabolical.’
One commented: ‘Just want to state that no member of AFTV is part of our fanbase, we don’t claim them and them celebrating Pulisic’s injury is a disgrace.’
While another added: ‘We are human before football my bro . Being happy over a player’s injury is absolutely diabolical.’
This isn’t the first time AFTV have found themselves in hot water. The site was recently in the news following racist comments made by a fan on the platform.
AFTV subsequently removed regular guest Claude ‘indefinitely’ after he made racist comments about Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min.
Arsenal, however, released a statement to distance itself, saying ‘the platform in question has no official association with Arsenal.’
