    Luiz does try to play the ball, however clumsily, and Abrahams body is not yes positioned to shoot he is facing away from goal slightly, Mustafi gets to the line on time. Whether he stops it is another matter.

    We were punished three times for the one offence, the rules were supposed to have changed. For everyone else.

    Should be Arteta's immediate goal but he's got one hell of a mess on his hands.

    Seriously, is the club going to do something about this relentless injustice against us? I don't understand how a multi billion pound industry cannot ensure a level playing field. All of the referees and VAR ****s need to be seriously injured. Instead they'll be living safe, sound and hidden away in their anonymous addresses without a worry in the world.

    It’s as corrupt as it can get. Looking at the dutch eredivisie VAR is done so much better. They even release footage of important decisions and how they came to choose what they did.

    I thought this too. I thought they'd done away with the double punishment of a penalty and a red card, and it was now just yellow. Something must have changed since then.

    I think it has to be for a badly timed tackle. They are inferring he made no attempt to play the ball so it’s still a red.

    Should really be pushed publicly - would create some pressure on the refs and put them in the limelight. Sick of this ****.

    Kante’s slip was like a reverse of Leno’s mistake in the reverse fixture. An uncharacteristic mistake by an otherwise good player. It was a slice of luck we’ve been waiting for. Boy have we been unlucky in Arteta’s reign so far.

    That's my interpretation of the rule as well though I think Luiz was still unlucky.

    He did try to play the ball but clumsily from an impossible angle.

    Strangely I'm not convinced the ending off actually hurt us anyway. Up until then we seemed strangely listless. A Chelsea side with more balls and talent would have already been two up at that point.

    The sending off seemed to renergise and refocus the team. Even Mustafi seemed to up his game to the point where he was broadly competent for the remainder of the 90 while Xhaka was immense at the back and won back some of the credit he lost.

    As for Martinelli.... Phwoar.....

    We played better with 10 players than 11, wtf is that about.

    Can't comment on the faul by Luiz since they never showed it properly and from different angle.
    but it was a clear cut chance, and Mustafi being on the line doesn't change it, since Leno was not there and you can count Musti as the very last man. Had Leno be there instead of Shkodran it would be considered a clear cut chance, since there was no one there but a goalie.
    so yeah, if a foul, it is a red

    but, their second was clear offside, clear interfering. Leno has to adjust himself with Abraham being there which allows Azpilicueta to have an easier goal

    Auba & Luiz both straight reds in EPL matches, does that mean 3 straight EPL games or just 3 straight games in general? Our next game is the FA cup, is this Luiz' first match or is he waiting till the next match for his first suspended game?

    Luiz one was a professional foul. So 1 match. Both of them will be back after Bournemouth in the FA Cup
