Arsenal player Xhaka got sent off after grabbing Burnley player Ashley Westwood by the throat. Xhaka has now collected 40 cards total since he joined Arsenal, 37 yellow cards and 3 red cards. According to our records, only Oriol Romeu is the player that has more total in a similar time.
Maybe Arsenal have discipline issues that they should resolve as soon as possible. Arsenal has now collected 6 red cards in less than 12 months, and the 2020 season is not even over yet.
Arsenal has lost each of their last four Premier League home games, their worst top-flight run on home soil since December 1959, a sequence which also included a defeat to Burnley.
Xhaka’s red card caused Arsenal today’s game. No coach Mikel Arteta may get sacked in the coming days.
Here is what you missed today.
- Aubameyang own goal
- 2 Premier League goals since October 17
- Lost four consecutive home league games
- 15th in the Premier League
