The English Football Association has charged English Premier League top side Arsenal for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves orderly during Saturday’s home loss to Premier League leaders and defending champions Manchester City. In the 59th minute, Gunners defender Gabriel was sent off after receiving a second yellow card.
Arsenal Fined for Bad Conduct in their 2-1 Loss to City
Brazilian Gabriel was booked twice inside two minutes, as Manchester City came from behind to win 2-1 to end Arsenal Winning run. The North London club has until 7 January to respond to the FA charge. Man City was awarded a penalty, with referee Stuart Attwell overturning his initial decision after viewing the pitchside monitor. And, just a minute after conceding from the penalty spot, Gabriel was shown a red card.
The Brazilian’s first yellow card came for trying to scuff up the penalty spot, while his second caution was for a foul on Gabriel Jesus. Bukayo Saka had scored to put Arsenal in front before Riyad Mahrez levelled the scores from the spot, and Rodri scored in stoppage time to complete the comeback win.
