'I've watched it 10 times and I still see no contact' - Arsenal boss Arteta fumes over David Luiz red card

David Luiz Arsenal 2020-21

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta was left fuming over David Luiz's red card after his side's 2-1 defeat to Wolves, saying he couldn't see any contact in the challenge even after repeated viewings.

Craig Pawson was quick to award Wolves a penalty and issue Luiz a straight red card and upon a VAR review, both decisions were upheld.

Ruben Neves converted from the spot to level the match and Joao Moutinho would then score the winner with a long-range stunner just after the break, before Bernd Leno's red card for handling the ball outside the box reduced the Gunners to nine men.

Speaking at his press conference after the match,Arteta insisted that Luiz had not made contact with Jose, while adding that he didn't believe the Brazilian's reputation for conceding penalties and picking up red cards influenced Pawson's decision.

“If you want to talk about the decision, I have just seen the replay 10 times, in five different angles, and I am sitting here with you guys and I can’t see any contact," Arteta said."So I would like to see VAR have different angles.

"If there is any contract, it’s him (Jose)to David, that’s what I’ve seen.

“I don’t want to think that it was a decision based on Luiz’s reputation. I am sure that they based the decision on something they’ve seen, but unfortunately I am sitting here expecting to see something and I am not seeing anything.

“Of course it changed the game. You play for 45 minutes in the Premier League without your central defender, against this opposition, of course it changes the game.”

Asked if VAR let his side down, Arteta replied: "Well, it was a big decision. If they got it right and they can justify that they got it right, I put my hand up and apologise.

"But the only thing I’m saying is I am sitting here and I cannot see any contact and that’s really frustrating because it’s a big, big moment in the game."

Luiz himself chimed in on social media after the game, posting a host of angry emojis and the caption "UNBELIEVABLE!" on Instagram.

Arteta was also asked if Arsenal planned to appeal Luiz's red card, and the manager indicated he was in favour of such a move.
