Hair-gate marred events at Old Trafford as Marouane Fellaini pulled Matteo Guendouzi's hair in a weird moment, and the long-haired Arsenal starlet has since reacted.

"I think the best thing is that he cuts his hair before the next match, then the problem is finished", Arsenal's manager said.

For Huth, the moment on Wednesday night evoked memories of his own tug on Fellaini's now obsolete afro hair.

Emery joked at his press conference on Thursday that Guendouzi could avoid a repeat of the situation by getting a fresh trim. "But today with all the cameras, everyone can catch all the situations in 90 minutes. Some questions are only for the players on the pitch", Emery said.

"No, I respect the players' hair a lot!" he replied.

Despite being pegged back twice by Jose Mourinho's side, the Gunners have extended their unbeaten run to 20 matches.

He also called on the Arsenal supporters to back the team again after they played their part in inspiring the fightback against Tottenham in a see-saw north London derby last Sunday.

'I think there is a bit of jealousy there, ' Guendouzi told RMC Sports in the mixed zone after the game (via Metro Sport).

"We need the same spirit as on Sunday. The draw yesterday is only good if we win against Huddersfield".

While Emery seems set to let bygones be bygones, you can't help but feel that a free-kick simply wasn't enough of a punishment.
