Arsenal blow as Matteo Guendouzi faces retrospective three-match ban for grabbing Neil Maupay by throat – The Sun

MATTEO GUENDOUZI faces a retrospective three-match ban after throttling Brighton striker Neal Maupay.

Arsenal’s French midfielder was filmed grabbing Maupay around the throat and hurling him to the ground at the end of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at The Amex.

SunSport’s ref expert Mark Halsey believes Guendouzi “could be in trouble” for violent conduct.

But he did not take any action for what would appear to be a clear red-card offence.
