Felipe Melo’s two-footed lunge on Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal beat Galatasaray 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium with Danny Welbeck scoring a hat-trick, Alexis Sanchez scoring one and Wojciech Szczesny getting sent off for a straight red card.

But should there have been another red card in the game?

Felipe Melo got away with just a yellow card after a very rash two-footed lunge on Alexis near the touchline.

The Chile forward had the ball on the left flank and flicked it forward before Melo recklessly took his feet out from under him, risking seriously injury to Alexis’s right ankle.

The question we are asking: Should Melo have been sent off for this challenge? Watch the video replay and cast your vote below.
