Harshest red card of the season?! Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta sent off for honest 50-50 shoulder with Marouane Chamakh

It was a classic case of Hero To Zero for Mikel Arteta today, though the latter part had little to do with him.
The Spaniard scored the opener for Arsenal at Crystal Palace, but was then sent off 18 minutes later….for a 50-50 shoulder with Marouane Chamakh!
HTF was this a red card?!
It’s an honest challenge, not even a foul; indeed the argument could be made that Chamakh was fouling just as much.
No question Arsene WILL have seen this, and will be appealing!
