Coming half-an-hour or so into Arsenal’s 4-1 drubbing of Galatasaray in the Champions League last night, Felipe Melo stayed true to form with a truly wince-inducing double-footed lunge on Alexis Sanchez which only earned the Brazilian makeshift defender a yellow card (and he still had the gall to complain to the referee).

Feel free to judge for yourself whether or not the punishment fitted the crime…

Horrible. Straight red, all day long in Pies’ book.
