Chelsea defender David Luiz received a red card for his tackle on Sead Kolasinac during Chelsea’s goalless draw against Arsenal on Sunday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Luiz deserves the red card because he used excessive force on Kolasinac.

“It was excessive force,” Wenger said.

“Kolasinac was not completely on his feet and eased a bit off. Even Luiz will accept with a bit of distance that he went in too strong.

“After that it’s the decision of the referee, which we have to accept. I haven’t seen it again but it looked to me that it was excessive force.”
