Manchester City have lodged an appeal against the sending off of captain Vincent Kompany during the 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday.

The Belgium international was shown a straight red card by referee Mike Dean after 76 minutes following a challenge on Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

City boss Roberto Mancini said immediately after the game that the reigning Barclays Premier League champions would appeal the decision and the club have confirmed on Monday morning that they are seeking to have the dismissal overturned.
