Bournemouth boss Howe feels Arsenal lucky not to lose Flamini to red card

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe feels that Arsenal were lucky not to lose Mathieu Flamini in their 2-0 loss to the Gunners.

The Arsenal midfielder escaped with a yellow card for his two-footed challenge on Dan Gosling in the eighth minute of the game when the score was still 0-0.

Howe told Sky Sports: "I thought it was a red, I had a very good view, it looked two footed and potentially off the floor.

"I've only seen it live but my initial view is definite red card.

"For me it wasn't a difficult decision, I felt that the two-footed tackle has been outlawed, and it was a red card."
