Arsenal were beaten 2-1 by Wolves on Tuesday night, despite having taken the lead in the 32nd minute via Nicolas Pepe.

Meanwhile, David Luiz cost his side the win as he conceded a penalty just before half time and was shown a red card by Craig Pawson, with Ruben Navas converting the resultant kick.

The decision cost Arsenal, as they eventually lost the match 2-1, and Gunners boss Mikel Arteta was critical of the decision immediately when speaking to reporters in his post-match press conference.

However, former Chelsea captain John Terry, who was teammates with David Luiz, has revealed that it was a penalty but never a red card.

“Never a red card! Double jeopardy,” Terry said in response to Sky Sports’ post about Luiz’s record of three red cards and six penalties conceded since joining Arsenal.

“Anyone who has ever played the game can see David never attempts to play the ball!!!

“He actually pulls out of the challenge. Which means penalty but no red card.”
