Arsenal already have three more red cards than goals in 2022.

THOMAS PARTEY’s send­ing off in Arse­nal’s Carabao Cup semi-final defeat to Liv­er­pool was a THIRD red card for the Gun­ners this year — against ONE goal.

Partey received a sec­ond yel­low card just three min­utes after his first, as Dio­go Jota’s brace end­ed Arse­nal’s pur­suit of sil­ver­ware for the 2021–22 season.

Partey’s sack­ing was a third in 20 days for Arsenal

Xha­ka was sent off in the first leg against Liv­er­pool last week.

Gabriel was sent to take an ear­ly show­er on New Years Day, which marked the start of a mis­er­able 2022 so far.
This means Arse­nal have now received three times as many red cards as they scored in 2022.

The stat is grim for Gun­ners fans, with Bukayo Saka’s goal in the game against Man­ches­ter City on New Year’s Day the only time Mikel Arte­ta’s side have found the back of the net this cal­en­dar year.

Gabriel was sent off for two avoid­able fouls in that same game, before Gran­it Xhaka’s moment of mad­ness at Anfield last week.

The Swiss mid­field­er was shown a straight red card for a reck­less waist move on Jota.

And Partey’s sack­ing tonight com­pletes an unruly start to 2022 for Arte­ta and his men.
