Arsenal’s request to speak to refereeing chiefs to discuss a number of controversial decisions in their recent Premier League fixtures has been granted.Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said he would like to speak to Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) after Gabriel Martinelli was sent off in a 1-0 win at Wolves on February 10. It was the fourth red card the Gunners have been shown since the start of the year. It was also the 15th of Arteta’s tenure, the Spaniard having taken charge in December 2019.
After making the request, Arteta said last week: “That’s happening soon. But obviously we have reported the opinion and the lack of understanding on the decision.”
