ARSENAL has received the most red cards in the Premier League since Mikel Arteta took over – despite being the second-least fouled.

Since Arteta’s first game in charge on Gift Day 2019 against Bournemouth, Gunners have seen red 12 times from 785 fouls.

It means Arsenal an average of one red card after 65.4 fouls – about 50% more often than second-place Bournemouth (98.5 fouls per red).

Burnley, on the other hand, was reasonably lucky in the red card case.

Clarets has committed 804 fouls since Boxing Day 2019 and has yet to receive a single red card.

However, you must take into account the severity of the problem.

Arsenal are also receiving an average of one card for every 5.73 fouls.

And the boss Arteta has admitted that he has ‘run out of ideas’ on how to prevent his faction from seeing red as often.

Gabriel Martinelli is the latest Gunners star to see red in Arsenal win close to Wolves.

The Brazilian received two consecutive yellow cards in the second half, putting Arsenal in a dangerous situation.

Fortunately for Martinelli, Arsenal held on to three valuable points.

But Arteta admitted to BT Sport: “I’ve run out of ideas I think.

“Wolves put seven players in front and it was difficult to keep a clean sheet but we defended extremely well.

“The character, the way we train, the spirit that we showed, I’m really proud of the boys. There’s solidarity and unity there.

“We need to play with 11 players in the last 16 and that’s important. To win games with 10 is very unlikely.”
