The striker was sent off for a tackle on Justin James barely 4 minutes after replacing Alexandre Lacazatte.

The referee initially showed the 21-year-old a yellow card, but a review of the VAR made the referee double his punishment.

Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta expressed his displeasure at the decision while pleading innocence for the striker.

“With the red card, he doesn’t see the player and you have to know that he is a young kid,” said Arsenal’s head coach.

“But if that is a red card then Leicester have to play with ten men after 42 minutes. That has to be a red card as well.

The gunners are appealing on the grounds of the wrongful decision and as well as excessive punishment.
