Arteta: I’ve never seen anything like Martinelli’s red card!

The manager was perplexed at how the Brazilian was sent off for separate yellow cards in the same phase of play.

Mikel Arteta said he has “never seen anything” like Gabriel Martinelli’s red card during Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Wolves on Thursday, which came after the striker was shown two yellows in the same phase of play.

Late in the second half, Martinelli first infringed upon a throw-in, with advantage being played, and moments later hacked down Chiquinho. Both offences were deemed worthy of yellow cards.

The Gunners have now seen four men red-carded in 2022, and since Arteta’s first game in charge of Arsenal on Boxing Day in 2019, they have received 15 red cards in all competitions, seven more than any other Premier League side.
