Again! Daily Mail mistake Arsenals Kieran Gibbs for Manchester Citys Gael Clichy [Live Text]

No one will ever forget the case of mistaken identity at Stamford Bridge last March, when referee Andre Marriner mistook Kieran Gibbs for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and sent off the former for the latter’s deliberate hand ball.

Spotted by Reddit user TensaStrider, The Daily Mail suffered a similar faux pas during their minute-by-minute reporting of today’s Community Shield (text below), only they mistook Gibbs for a player on the other team, Gael Clichy.

Clichy of course used to play for Arsenal, which was probably the root of the confusion.
