Gunners back to winning ways

Published Add your comment

Arsenal got their Barclays Premier League campaign back on track with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Birmingham, but had Jack Wilshere sent off in stoppage time for a rash challenge.

The Blues went ahead through Nikola Zigic after 33 minutes as once again the Gunners - who lost their past two league games before the international break - failed to make the most of their early possession.

However, Samir Nasri levelled from the spot just before half-time, with Marouane Chamakh slotting home a well-taken second two minutes after the restart which proved enough for all three points - only for Wilshere to show his imaturity with a reckless challenge on Zigic which earned him a straight red and a three-match ban.
