Video: David Luiz Sees Red Card Against Arsenal For Brutal Tackle on Sead Kolašinac

Chelsea defender David Luiz was shown a straight red card against Arsenal this afternoon after a pretty brutal tackle on Gunners left-back Sead Kolašinac.

In what was billed as a heavyweight Premier League contest, neither side really caught fire at Stamford Bridge, with the match eventually ending in a drab 0-0 draw.

Aaron Ramsey had the best chance of the match when he hit Chelsea’s post from close-range, but the biggest talking point will undoubtedly be Luiz’s dismissal.

With just three minutes remaining, the Brazilian defender chased a loose ball on the touchline, and simply refused to pull out of a 50-50 ball with Kolašinac – who definitely came out second-best:

Referee Michael Oliver didn’t hesitate in quickly brandishing the red card, and fortunately for everyone involved, Kolašinac was fine and able to carry on.

But what do you think of Luiz’s challenge? Was he simply over committed, or a little bit dirty?
