What was his yellow card for? I couldn't have been verbals to the ref cos VAR had a look.
He is Xhaka he was probably spot fixing to get his mandatory yellow to pay off whatever underworld types are after him nowadays

Can't believe Arteta is whinging about the ref after that. Holding did well to stay on as long as he did
Yeah I saw he had a moan so I watched the mini match and I have no clue what he can be moaning about

The penalty was a bit soft for a derby game.

But the red card whilst not violent was for repeated stupidity. He didn't even try and walk a tight rope. Just doubled down on trying to get yellow cards

I can kind of understand a little bit about the penalty. It was a foul, they just aren't given very often in the box. Soares made it too obvious for the referee to miss

The funny thing is that it was on a Dier long ball. He would be 1 in a 1000 of getting the right weight on it for Son to run on to

Would really prefer he doesn’t react the way he chooses to.

I’ve read his biggest issue seems to be the fact the penalty decision didn’t warrant a second look via VAR. And that this incident was allowed without any sanction.

VAR are never going to overturn that penalty. There is a foul there so it's not an obvious error

Thought Son might have got a yellow for that similar to Holding having a kick at Son's ribs could have received something 5 minutes before that

Holding isn't a bad player, but he was terribly exposed against Spurs.
His tactics were wrong, i am assuming he was told to get tight to Son but then you are in trouble once he is past especially if you aren't quick. Some poor coaching and bad decisions made by him

Var can’t intervene for yellows. Is there enough force to make that a straight red?

I agree.

A culmination of things worked against him. Though, had better decisions been made (not referring to the referee), it could have been different.

even if cedric jumps into him he likely gets away with it. instead he just tunnels him almost
