That's an ankle-breaker!

Arsenal captain, top goal-scorer, best player and saviour, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, will miss Arsenal's showdown against Chelsea on 21st January after receiving a red card in the 68th minute for an ankle-breaker of a tackle.

Fair warning: not for the squeamish.

Aubameyang had initially only gotten a yellow, but VAR stepped in and changed it to a red card. VAR works!

This means that Aubameyang will sit out Arsenal's next three matches, which includes their trip to Stamford Bridge. Considering how bad we have been at home, we need all the help we can get.
