Jack Wilshere’s Arsenal career is currently hanging by a thread - but the technically-gifted midfielder done himself no favours whatsoever on Monday night.
Wilshere, who returned to the Emirates Stadium this summer following a season-long loan spell with Bournemouth, was sent off while playing for Arsenal’s Under-23 side against Manchester City.
The 25-year-old was shown a straight red card after reacting badly to a late challenge by City’s 17-year-old midfielder Matthew Smith.
Wilshere shoved Smith to the ground and then reacted after being pushed by Tyreke Wilson.
Referee Samuel Allison dismissed both Wilshere and Wilson moments later.
