In their bid to reverse the red card David Luiz got in Tuesday’s 2-1 Premier League loss against Wolves, Arsenal has lost.
Luiz will thus miss Arsenal’s competition against Aston Villa.
An Arsenal statement read: “The Football Association have confirmed to us that the red card given to David Luiz on Tuesday against Wolverhampton Wanderers will stand.
“We have worked really hard to overturn David Luiz’s red card. We presented our case to the FA but are disappointed that our appeal has been unsuccessful.
“We accept the FA’s decision and continue our preparations for Saturday’s match against Aston Villa.”
Thus, the FA dismissed the Gunners’ appeal against his sending off against Wolves.
