EPL: Arsenal Lose Appeal Over Luiz’s Red Card Against Wolves

Arsenal’s appeal against the decision to send off David Luiz during Tuesday’s defeat at Wolves has been dismissed by the FA.


Luiz was sent off for the third time in his Arsenal career during the 2-1 loss on Tuesday after being adjudged to have committed a last-man foul in first-half stoppage-time on Wolves striker Jose by referee Craig Pawson.

Contact appeared to be minimal, but the decision was upheld by VAR Jon Moss.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta had been “very hopeful” of overturning the decision, adding that putting the blame on Luiz for the incident “isn’t fair”.


Arsenal have accepted the FA’s decision but say they are “disappointed that our appeal has been unsuccessful”.

Meanwhile, Southampton will have defender Jan Bednarek available for Saturday’s trip to Newcastle after his dismissal against Manchester United was overturned.
