Top 5: Premier League doppelgängers (1)

Andre Marriner committed the cardinal sin of sending off the wrong player on Saturday, when mistaking Kieran Gibbs for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain during Arsenal's 6-0 defeat against Chelsea.

With the Gunners already 2-0 down after less than 10 minutes on the clock at Stamford Bridge, the 20-year-old midfielder executed a deliberate handball in an attempt to prevent a third goal for the hosts.

A penalty was rightly awarded to Chelsea, but the events that followed shocked all the spectators, as Arsenal left-back Gibbs was given his marching orders, having been wrongly identified as the perpetrator of the foul.

Oxlade-Chamberlain owned up to the referee that he was in fact the guilty party, but Marriner and his officials had already made their minds up, and stood by their incredulous decision.

In light of the extraordinary goings on in west London at the weekend, GiveMeSport has decided to pick out five other possible Premier League doppelgängers, who run the risk of being involved in a future case of mistaken identity with the much-maligned man in the middle.
