Arsenal centre-back Gabriel was sent off on the same red card as his red card in the 1-1 draw with Southampton last season against Manchester City.
The Brazilian defender was given his marching order in a 2–1 loss against the Nationals after receiving two quick bookable offenses.
Gabriel received his first warning after Bernardo Silva commented on referee Stuart Atwell after winning a controversial penalty.
He was shown his second yellow card just two minutes later after bringing Gabriel Jesus to the halfway line just before the hour mark.
His blatant dishonesty angered BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand, who labeled the 24-year-old as ‘stupid, immature and petulant’.
Former Citizen star Jolene Lescott said she wasn’t surprised by her initial shower, announcing she lost her head before them.
In December 2020, the ex-Lille Ace was dispatched on Saturday afternoon against the Saints in the Emirates in an almost exact replica of his red.
Unlike Citi, Gabriel received two yellow cards, only this time the booking was four minutes away.

And the timing of his departure also coincided with his dismissal against City, as he was shown his red card in the 62nd minute.
Not only this, the style of the other yellow cards of both was also very similar.
Jesus was fouled by Gabriel, later in his compatriot just behind the center circle.
In a draw with the Saints, Theo Walcott was knocked down as he spun Gabriel just behind the half line.
Both incidents happened even as Arsenal were drawing 1-1.
After a disappointing, but valiantly loss at the hands of City, Gabriel announced on social media that he would die for the Gunners.
She tweeted: “It’s hard to admit but only God knows everything! Proud to be a part of this team!!! Amazing feeling!
“We will keep working together, fighting till the end!! For this team I will run till my death!! Keep improving in 2022!!!”
