London: Tottenham fans pelted Arsenal forward Theo Walcott with coins as their team was overpowered 2-0 in a hotly-contested London derby in the FA Cup on Saturday.
  


Arsenal had already scored its goals in the third round fixture when the fierce rivalry turned ugly in the final ten minutes as Walcott was being carried off on a stretcher.
   
Despite his knee injury, Walcott used his predicament as a chance to taunt the Tottenham fans, signaling the 2-0 score with his fingers as he was carried around the Emirates Stadium pitch.
   
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insisted that the gesture came after -- not before -- Tottenham fans hurled coins and bottles at Walcott and the medics carrying him.
   
"The doctors said to me that the coins had been raining over (Walcott's) head and they had to protect him, maybe that is why he did that (gesture)," Wenger said.
