Luiz was sent off for committing a last man foul on Wolves striker Jose Willian by referee Craig Pawson in the first half stoppage time.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta stated before now that he has watch the replay ten times from five different angle but he couldn’t see any contact and also said he will like to  see if VAR has different angle.
