Arsenal are set to launch an appeal against David Luiz's red card against Wolves, Goal can confirm.

Arsenal went on to lose the match 2-1, with Joao Mourinho scoring a spectacular long-range winner which rendered Nicolas Pepe's 32nd-minute opener as nothing more than a consolation for the visitors.

Goal understands that the Gunners will be appealing Luiz's sending offbecause they believe the Brazilian's challenge to have been accidental, though no official plea has been made as of yet.

Artetavoiced his frustration over the decision post-match, telling reporters: "I've seen it 10 times in different angles and I cannot tell you where the contact is."

Asked if the club would seek to have the red card overturned, the Spaniard responded: "I would say yes, let's go straight away, but we have to speak and make the decision about what's the best thing to do.

"If they have another 50 different angles to watch it, maybe I will be surprised.To play with 10 men for 45 minutes in the Premier League without your centre-back, against this opposition, of course, it changes the game.

"It was a big decision, if they got it right and can justify they got it right I put my hand up and apologise. The way we lost the game is where it really hurts, it's painful."
