If it's serious foul play... he'll miss 4 games. 3 for the red and an extra 1 because it's his second one.

I'm not watching it and they don't seem too outraged on the radio so I thought it was just denial of a goalscoring opportunity.

It'll depend on the ref. It is denial of a goalscoring opportunity, but you could argue it was serious foul play. Classic Xhaka :lol:

Xhaka has got to have one of the worst disciplinary records at this point surely?

Here's hoping he gets there. Might be the only top 10 Arsenal feature in this year

Minamino's a trier but unfortunately he adds more weight to the theory that you generally get what you pay for. I'm sure a lot of outlets will try and spin the African lads not being available as key tonight but I think Alexander-Arnold being off his game tonight had a bigger impact. His deliveries against low blocks are usually really good at cracking them open. Hopefully it was just a bad game and not him still needing time to recover from COVID. Missed Thiago a lot too.

Fair play to Arsenal, a good organised defensive performance under difficult circumstances after that sending off.

Injuries and suspensions shouldn't really be a factor, getting a match postponed for Covid is one thing but if you've just strawberry floated your own squad up without cover then that's on you to deal with surely?

Yeah, they strawberry floated up by saying 13 players available rather than x number with covid.

It's abit ridiculous that if you have injuries, suspensions and players at AFCON and 1 covid test that takes you to 12 the game gets postponed.

But they can't change it now. They've set precedent.

One of the worst performances at Anfield is the season, no creativity. Deserved draw.
