Granit Xhaka has picked up a straight red card for his tussle with Burnley’s Ashley Westwood, leaving Arsenal down to 10 men.
The Swiss midfielder has made his side’s task so much harder to achieve after battling for an hour to no avail.
Xhaka was initially given a yellow card for his tackle on Westwood, but VAR had a closer look, and upon seeing the midfielder grab the other player by the neck, the card was changed.
