Before playing Arsenal, Aston Villa suffered a nightmare in terms of suspension.

Douglas Luiz, an Aston Villa midfielder, was given his tenth yellow card of the season, meaning he will miss the team’s Premier League match against Arsenal on April 9.


Dougla Luiz will serve a suspension following his tenth yellow card of the year, which he received during Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Brentford, dealing a serious blow to Aston Villa ahead of their matchup with Arsenal.

Players who receive 10 bookings in their club’s first 32 games are subject to a two-match suspension under Premier League regulations. Luiz will therefore also be absent from the April 21 match against Bournemouth.

In what was basically the final play of the game, the vital midfield player—who is a candidate for Villa’s player of the year—was booked for a foul on Mathias Jorgensen in the seventh minute of extra time against Brentford.

Had he managed to avoid a booking for just a few more seconds, even if he had received his tenth yellow card of the season against Arsenal, he would not have faced a ban as it would have been Villa’s 33rd league game of the season.
