Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has uncovered that Eddie Nketiah apologized to his partners in the changing area in the wake of getting sent off against Leicester City.

Arteta, notwithstanding, demanded that the player did nothing incorrectly.

The Gunners started to lead the pack through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Tuesday night and afterward rejected a few opportunities to expand their lead.

The defining moment of the game came when Nketiah, only on as a substitute, confounded a test, with official Chris Kavanagh counseling his pitch-side screen on the proposal of VAR, before redesigning the discipline to a red card.

Leicester overwhelmed from that point on and evened out through Jamie Vardy.

When asked how Nketiah reacted to the red card, Arteta said at his post-match press conference: “He’s disappointed, he said sorry, and he doesn’t need to do that.

“I know when he goes for every single ball it’s because he’s so willing to win every challenge, to be on the front foot in every action.

“He didn’t see the player coming up and obviously he doesn’t want to hurt anybody.

“So it’s part of the process. They are really young, they need to learn from this situation and hopefully, it won’t happen again.”
