Manchester City 6 Arsenal 3: Jack Wilshere could miss Chelsea match after gesture towards City fans
Television camera's picked up Wilshere gesturing towards supporters midway through the second half of Arsenal's heavy defeat
Saturday 14 December 2013
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is likely to face disciplinary action after being pictured raising his middle finger toward Manchester City's fans during his team's 6-3 loss in the English Premier League.
Television cameras spotted the England international making the gesture in the 69th minute of Saturday's match at Etihad Stadium, when Arsenal was down 4-2.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez received a one-match ban for the same offense during a league game at Fulham in December 2011.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he didn't see Wilshere's gesture but added "if he did it, we will have to accept it."
