Goal: Arsenal hope to have Aubameyang's ban reduced
- Auba got a red card in the Palace clash.
- He is suspended for 3 games.
- Arsenal don't plan to launch an appeal.
- The club believe there are enough mitigating circumstances to have the suspension reduced.
- Earlier, the FA overturned Son's red card.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is facing 3-games ban after being sent off in the Palace clash for a nasty tackle on Max Meyer. Initially, the striker only got into the referee's book but after a VAR review, Auba got a red card.
According to Goal, even though the Gunners don't plan to launch an appeal but they hope the suspension will be reduced as the club believe the punishment was too harsh as Aubameyang did not use excessive force when making the tackle.
It should be noted that the Premier League have already seen the precedent of cancelling the ban.
Tottenham successfully appealed the official's decision, which was taken after a VAR intervention. However, the FA subsequently overturned the forward's red card ruling the dismissal 'wrongful'.
