​Arsenal fail in Luiz red card appeal

Arsenal's appeal against the decision to send off David Luiz during Tuesday's defeat at Wolves has been dismissed by the FA.

Luiz was sent off f after being adjudged to have committed a last-man foul in first-half stoppage-time on Wolves striker Jose by referee Craig Pawson.

Contact appeared to be minimal, but the decision was upheld by VAR Jon Moss.

Arsenal have accepted the FA's decision but say they are "disappointed that our appeal has been unsuccessful".
