Arsenal will be without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for three games after the striker saw red in the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

Aubameyang was given his marching orders after VAR ruled his reckless challenge on Max Meyer to be worthy of a red.

Arsenal have not appealed the decision and will be without Aubameyang for the rest of the month.

The Gabon international will miss vital matches against Premier League games against Sheffield United (H) and Chelsea (A) – Arsenal have already suffered defeats to both teams this season.

Aubameyang sees red at Selhurst Park on Saturday

And he will also be absent for the FA Cup fourth-round clash against Bournemouth at the Dean Court.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will likely bring in Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka or Reiss Nelson into the fold with Alexandre Lacazette continuing to lead the line.

There’s no doubt Auba’s goal will be a big miss. The lethal finisher has chalked up 14 Prem goals in his 22 appearances so far.
