Arsenal loanee Marquinhos started just his second game for Norwich City in the Championship last night, but unfortunately for him, he received a red card.

The young Brazilian joined the Gunners from Sao Paulo for £3 million (Goal) last summer. He was never going to be a regular at Arsenal, but he did impress in the few opportunities he got under Mikel Arteta.

In January, Arsenal decided to send him out on loan, and Norwich were viewed as the perfect club for him.

After going out on loan to Norwich, Marquinhos did the same on his debut there. He scored one and assisted another against Cardiff City last month.

Last night, the teenager was handed his second start, but things did not go to plan. At the very end of what was a dismal performance by Norwich, the Arsenal man was shown a red card for an elbow.

Arsenal and Norwich City fans are in agreement after Marquinhos received a red card last night.

Everyone feels it was a shocking decision and the youngster’s challenge deserved nothing more than a yellow card. Some even think the EFL will overturn it and save him from suspension.

Here’s what a few Arsenal and Norwich supporters had to say…
