Mikel Arteta could barely bring himself to look at midfielder Granit Xhaka after the much-maligned Swiss international earned yet another red card against Liverpool at Anfield.

As well as the issues on the night playing a man down, Xhaka's red card brings repercussions beyond the final whistle at Anfield.

Comment below Oliver wasted no time in reaching for his back pocket and Xhaka barely protested the decision.

As he trudged off the pitch, manager Arteta refused to leave his seat and interact with Xhaka as his immediate reaction made it crystal clear he was far from happy with what he had just seen.

Instead of allowing Jota to bring the ball down and risk the in-form Portugal international putting the hosts in front, Xhaka blindly tried to boot the ball clear and caught the Reds forward in the chest.

Xhaka was given his marching orders by Michael Oliver with less than 30 minutes on the clock after he was guilty of a foolish kick on Diogo Jota who was baring down on goal.

Instead, the Gunners boss was pictured in discussion with assistants Steve Round and Albert Stuivenberg to determine what alterations should be made in the wake of the red card.
