Arsenal are playing well against Everton, and as they rely on results elsewhere, they are doing their bit to make things interesting by beating Everton.
That means that it is left to individual Arsenal players to implode, and the man who has eagerly obliged has been Laurent Koscielny. The French defender has been critical for Arsenal this season - they technically beat Bayern Munich 2-1 while he was on the pitch earlier this season - but he will now miss next weekend's FA Cup final against Chelsea, seeing red for a wild, flailing lunge on Enner Valencia.
There was no doubt about the red card, but the good folk at Football Focus managed to have an argument nonetheless.The French defender refused to leave the field immediately, which stoked the moral outrage of Garth Crooks. Martin Keown tried to defend him, but was shouted down by Crooks in that magnificently righteous manner he has.
Kevin Kilbane could only laugh.
