Ok, so Arsenal have been much improved this season compared to their 2017/18 campaign, but they’re still capable of producing some absolute clangers.

Alexandre Lacazette has been sent off for only the third time in his senior career: The first time since October 2013.

Arsenal have a week to stew on that result before they try to turn things around in the return leg at the Emirates. If you’re not an Arsenal fan and have nothing to do on Valentine Day’s evening, just whip your laptop out, open up AFTV’s YouTube channel, and watch the carnage unfold.
