Pundits and Chelsea fans saying it wasn't a red. Thoughts? Oh and pen was outside the box. I thin he was fouled, went on and got fouled again.

Final foul was in box, ref didnt count first one
If it was given to an Arsenal player there would be no complaints

If it was given outside then it’s a red, no way Rudiger was catching Aubameyang

Kovacic red wasn’t deserved

Thought it was a penalty.
Harsh 2nd yellow for sending off.

It was a pen and it could have been a red to Azpilicueta early on.

Kovacic second yellow shouldn't have been given though. Reminds me of Maitland Niles undeserved second yellow against Leicester 2 seasons ago when Maddison made a meal out of a nothing tackle.

Anyhow, we deserved the win.

Never a second yellow, but as mentioned already, Azpilicueta could have gotten a straight red if Auba had gone down when the initial contact was made on him.

Think the injury to Pulisic was a bigger factor in them loosing the game than the red card.

A lot of Chelsea's creativity, if not all, comes from him.

Pulisic was the turning point for them.

I fear for Pulisic.
Very disappointing if his hammy troubles become chronic.
I believe this is the 3rd time this has happened to him.
He impressed in his 'cameo'.

Self sustainable is a word that rich people with short arms and deep pockets use.
