Arsenal's appeal against Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's three-match suspension for a red card was unsuccessful, meaning the striker miss the games against Sheffield United, Chelsea and Bournemouth.

The Gunners asked the FA to review the challenge and Aubameyang's likely punishment following his straight red card against Crystal Palace but they found out that their appeal was rejected on Wednesday. 

Aubameyang was dismissed in Arsenal's 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace for a low but late challenge on Max Meyer.

The forward will now serve a three-match ban, sitting out Arsenal's league matches against the Blades and Chelsea as well as the FA Cup fourth-round match on the south coast.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admitted the second-half tackle looked 'nasty', with Meyer's ankle bending 90 degrees on impact, and the German was unable to continue playing after, at first, trying to hobble on.

But captain Aubameyang, Arsenal's top scorer with 16 goals, was initially shown a yellow card by referee Paul Tierney which was only upgraded to a red after VAR Craig Pawson spent considerable time reviewing slow-motion replays of the incident.

Pawson decided the point of contact and intensity of the challenge endangered the safety of the opponent and constituted serious foul play.
