Arsenal captain, Aubameyang, was sent off following a lunging tackle which caught Max Meyer on the left ankle during their one-all draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
He had put his side ahead with a well-worked team goal as Mikel Arteta’s side dominated the first half but Jordan Ayew brought Palace level after the break, his goal-bound effort leaving Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno with little chance after bouncing off David Luiz.
The Eagles could consider themselves lucky to end the match with 11 players with Tomkins narrowly avoiding a red card after a late challenge on Gabriel Martinelli, in what was a feisty first London derby of 2020.
Arsenal manager Arteta – who had not even born when Palace boss Roy Hodgson started his managerial career – remains without an away win in the league since taking over as manager on 20 December.
Palace, meanwhile, remain ninth in the Premier League table, one place above the Gunners.
