Andre Mariner has an absolute shocker…
Despite the fact Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain admitted to the referee he’d handled the ball on the line, Andre Mariner sent off Kieran Gibbs instead during Arsenal’s first-half horror show against Chelsea…
Here’s how Twitter reacted:
Gibbs has been sent off instead of Ox – WTF Referee ?!

I hope Andre Marriner enjoys his next few games in the Beazer Homes league

Chamberlain told the ref ‘it was me’. How can Andy Mariner get that wrong?

“Ref it was me” says Ox and Marriner still sent the wrong guy off. Should never ref in the Premier League again. Staggering incompetence

Oxlade-Chamberlain told referee Andre Marriner: “It was me” … then Gibbs sent off for no apparent reason.

The referee has noted Didier Drogba as the first goalscorer.

This is when even if you are a purist like me, it is hard to argue about the use of technology.
