Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is set to miss the touchline action during their upcoming Premier League clash against Aston Villa this Saturday.
Arteta earned himself a yellow card for exuberant celebrations following Arsenal’s decisive goal against Luton Town on Tuesday. This incident marked his third yellow card of the season, leading to an automatic one-match suspension.
The rule, implemented at the commencement of this season, imposes penalties for accumulating a certain number of yellow cards.
In the recent match, Declan Rice secured a 97th-minute winning goal, sparking jubilant celebrations among players, staff, and fans, propelling Arsenal to a five-point lead at the top of the league.
Reflecting on the yellow card after the game, Arteta expressed his emotions to beIN Sports, stating, “I could not be seated in my seat. It was pure emotion. If that’s a yellow… that’s a yellow.”
