After the win against Spurs, Arsene Wenger had some choice words regarding Gabriel’s red card against Chelsea.

Since Saturday, the centre-back has had his red card and three-match ban rescinded but rather than placate the manager, this has just further proven that the decision was incorrect in the first place.

Speaking after the 2-1 win over Spurs in the Capital One Cup, the boss said, “It just shows that they decided after the game what should have happened during the game.

“They repair 5% of the damage that had been done to us.”

Wenger added, “Gabriel should not have responded at all, I told him that, but when you watch it again he did not do a lot, honestly.”

Diego Costa has since received one-match for his actions during the match at Stamford Bridge, which saw the Blues win 2-0 due to a poorly defended set-piece and an own goal from Calum Chambers – a trend the young defender carried into the north London derby on Wednesday night.

Many Arsenal fans were calling for the Chelsea game to be replayed, which is unlikely, but with a win against our closest (geographical) rivals to send us through to face Sheffield Wednesday in the next round of the Capital One Cup, hopefully we’ll be able to move forward.
