David Luiz was sent off (Picture: MB Media/Getty)Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta revealed David Luiz was hugely ‘disappointed’ after his red card against former club Chelsea but ultimately immensely proud of his team-mates for leaving Stamford Bridge in a 2-2 draw.Luiz could be seen watching on nervously inside the stadium as the last few minutes of the match unfolded, having been sent off in the first half for a challenge on Tammy Abraham.Abraham had been gifted a route through on goal by Luiz’s centre-back partner Shkodran Mustafi and he was giving his marching orders after denying Abraham – who had already gone past Kepa Arrizabalaga – a goalscoring opportunity.AdvertisementAdvertisementJorginho’s penalty saw Arteta’s men fall a goal as well as a man down against their London rivals but they fought admirably to take a point away from Stamford Bridge.ADVERTISEMENTGabriel Martinelli first capitalised on a slip from N’Golo Kante as he completed an 80-yard dash from inside his own half to slot past Kepa but Arsenal came unstuck with what appeared to be a late winner from Cesar Azpilicueta.However, right-back Hector Bellerin had other ideas and curled in from the edge of the area with his weaker foot to send Arsenal fans into raptures.The result spared the blushes of Luiz, who will be a relieved man, and Arteta revealed he was proud of the efforts of his team-mates.Proud of the team and the character shown tonight. #arsenal #chelseavsarsenal #coyg pic.twitter.com/z3FzS3YzTj— Mikel Arteta (@m8arteta) January 21, 2020 Advertisement Comment ‘It was a very special game but to get sent off the way he did, he was disappointed but at the same time proud of his team-mates,’ said Arteta.The Arsenal manager added to BT Sport: ‘Time will tell if this is a stepping stone, but at least I saw a reaction. I demand from the players that they never give up, we have to keep playing with the spirit we showed in every game.‘I’m proud of the way they reacted. They stepped up – if a team-mate makes a mistake they have to have their back.‘It’s a good point in the end.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 87 years old, and on Friday she announced that she is undergoing chemotherapy for a recurrence of liver cancer.She has previously bounced back after treatment for lung, pancreatic and colon cancer. Ginsburg’s mortality is important, especially in this election year, because if her seat were to become vacant between now and the November election, it would fall to President Trump to nominate her successor. Were that person to be confirmed by the Senate, he or she would be Trump’s third appointment to the nine-member court.The left says, if Ginsburg were to die or resign in the coming months, the only honorable, morally consistent thing for Senator Mitch McConnell to do would be to take a step back, refuse to consider a Trump nominee and put the issue off until after Inauguration Day, so that the American people can have their say.But, McConnell recently was asked what he would do if a Supreme Court seat came open in 2020 during the presidential campaign. “Oh, we’d fill it,” he said.
