THE FA have launched an investigation into a yellow card received by an Arsenal player in a Premier League game this season, according to reports.
It comes after bookmakers reported 'suspicious betting patterns' relating to a Gunners star being booked.
Bookies flagged an 'unusual amount of money being placed on the Arsenal player being shown a yellow', according to the Athletic.
The FA told them: “The FA is aware of the matter in question and is looking into it.”
Several gambling industry workers have described the betting pattern as 'highly unusual'.
Such 'spot betting' has long been an issue for governing bodies as the outcomes are much easier for individuals involved in sporting events to manipulate.
The identity of the player in question is yet to be released.
Albert Sambi Lokonga and Granit Xhaka have received the joint-most yellow cards in the Prem for Arsenal so far this season.
