Arsenal’s appeal to the FA towards David Luiz Red card has been denied hence disappointments that will result to the defender missing Saturday’s game at Aston Villa.


Arsenal has expressed their disappointment after they failed in their appeal to have Luiz’s red card against Wolverhampton rescinded. During the match, Luiz was sent off seconds before the half time. This after the defender had a collision with Wolves striker Willian Jose.

Referee Craig Pawson deemed that Luiz had made no attempt to make a challenge when bringing down the Wolves striker in the penalty area, so brandished a red card for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity.

The VAR checked the incident at the time, with the VAR official Jon Moss agreeing with Pawson’s on-field decision. However, Arsenal was licensed. After studying all the footage available, the club launched an appeal. The reason being they felt the incident was accidental and that if there had been any contact, it was minimal at best and not worthy of a foul.

In response, the Gunners believed they had submitted a strong case. But the Football Association has now announced it differently. Following a hearing by an independent regulatory commission, the red card will stand. Luiz will also have to serve a one-game suspension. This automatically means the center-back will miss Saturday’s trip to Aston Villa.

To Arsenal, they released a statement expressing their disappointment at the verdict.

It read, “We have worked really hard to overturn David Luiz’s red card. We presented our case to the FA. But, we are disappointed that our appeal has been unsuccessful”.

‘We accept the FA’s decision and continue our preparations for Saturday’s match against Aston Villa”.
