Crystal Palace 0-1 Arsenal, Tomiyasu saw undeserved red card

Arsenal got another 3 points at Crystal palace this night, it was a tough away match for the Gunners but eventually came out with the win.

The Gunners were extremely dominant of the possession in the opening half, but both sides were looking dangerous in the final third.

Eddie Nketiah wasted a number of chances, clipping the outside of the post when under strong pressure from two defenders, as well as chipping an effort over the goal in a one-on-one with the keeper.

Neither side managed to score in the opening 45 however, and it took a penalty for the deadlock to be broken.

Nketiah was brought down inside the box to give Martin Odegaard the chance to score from the spot, and he didn’t disappoint.

Palace continued to knock on the door, with their long-ball and counterattacking efforts, and when Takehiro Tomiyasu picked up a second yellow just after the hourmark, Crystal Palace came all over Arsenal but the Gunner boss was proactive as he introduced defensive players to shut down Palace attack.

My opinion about the red card to Tomiyasu is that the ref. was too hash and he shouldn’t have sent the poor boy out with the second yellow card like that.
