There’s no other way to describe it, Andre Marriner had a complete stinker today.
The Premier League referee held his hands up and admitted that he sent the wrong player off as he showed Kieran Gibbs a straight red card following a handball from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain inside the Chelsea penalty area.
The spot kick put the Gunners 3-0 behind as they eventually went onto lose 6-0 but the decision prompted complete disbelief from Gibbs, who in one photo looked as though he was about to burst out laughing.
It’s unclear at the moment how the blunder will be handled but it’s likely that the decision to send Gibbs off will be overturned and potentially attributed to the Ox, who would then be suspended instead of the left-back.
Take a look at some pictures which show shock, confusion and complete disbelief from the England international.
