Arsenal have been informed that the controversial red card shown to defender David Luiz against Wolves will stand, and the player will now undertake a suspension.
Luiz was handed the straight-red dismissal following an apparent coming together with striker Willian Jose inside the area on Tuesday night, which saw the Wolves man left sprawling on the turf as a result.
The Brazilian immediately pleaded his innocence to referee Craig Pawson after a penalty kick and red card were awarded, only for the Video Assistant Referee to back up the decision and confirm his exit from the field.
