(Video) Shocking reckless David Luiz challenge sees Chelsea ace appropriately sent off after debate
Twitter meltdown over David Luiz incident, fans fume while Liverpool mocked
(Video) David Luiz escapes with yellow after booting Arsenal ace with unsuccessful overhead kick
Chelsea defender David Luiz was sent off against Arsenal on Sunday, and getting been proven an upright red, he’ll now miss the following three domestic games.
Getting ‘escaped’ a red earlier after booting Laurent Koscielny while attempting an overhead kick, he didn’t get lucky two times because this time referee Michael Oliver gave him his marching orders.
His absence within the final bet on that three will hurt probably the most, as Antonio Conte may have been desperate to possess a full-strength squad available.
Rather, he’ll need to get by without Luiz now, although he it’s still open to play against Atletico Madrid within the Champions League on September 27, because the suspension doesn’t continue to European competition.
Consequently, if it is confirmed that Luiz now misses three games, barring a effective appeal which looks highly unlikely, he’ll now sit the League Cup encounter with Nottingham Forest, and 2 Premier League games against Stoke City and Manchester City.
It had been a reckless challenge worth a red for that Brazilian worldwide, because he lost his mind late on and went flying in on Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac.
