Per Mertasacker has just been sent off for Arsenal in their clash with Chelsea at the Emirates.
Having been reduced to nine men during their match at Stamford Bridge earlier this year, Arsenal aren’t getting on much better at the Emirates today.
Less than twenty minutes into the London derby this afternoon, Willian sent Spanish striker Diego Costa in on goal with a wonderful through ball. Mertesacker lamely lunged in with a late sliding tackle and the German was off.
Although Costa made an absolute meal of the incident, the German was deemed to be last man and it seemed to be the right call. It was an inch perfect pass from Willian that Costa had taken in his stride before Mertesacker brought him down.

To make matters worse for the Gunners, Diego Costa wasn’t long rubbing salt in the wounds just minutes after the red card;
