3. Red was the color for Arsenal:
For Arsenal, it was a day to forget. Gabriel’s red card was debatable but what his reaction to it was totally unnecessary and immature. Him kicking Costa right in front of Mike Dean, was nothing but silly and imprudent. His send off pretty much cost them the game, apart from Cazorla’s red card added to the problem.
Pedro who had a dream debut didn’t quite show the same quality in this game. He had the most number of chances to score, squandering each one of them. His overrunning across the field with ball saw two through ball opportunities wasted. His track back was good but going forward he didn’t offer much.
