Palace boss Alan Pardew feels Arsenal’s Francis Coquelin should’ve been sent off (Video)

Speaking in his post-match interview, Alan Pardew bemoaned the referee’s decision to let Francis Coquelin away with a second bookable offence.

The French defensive midfielder had been booked in the first half, and then committed another foul before the break.

So Pardew feels that on accumulation of fouls alone, Coquelin should have received a second yellow.

But the Palace boss wasn’t using it as an excuse, and accepted that Arsenal were probably just about worthy of the win.
