Picture of the Day: Jack Wilshere sent off

Jack Wilshere was rightly sent off for this challenge which fortunately did not lead to a serious injury to Birmingham's Nikola Zigic.

The midfielder has acknowledged his mistimed tackle warranted a red card and said after the game:
“I just want to say that I mistimed the challenge on Zigic and accept that I deserved to be sent off.” 
Arsene Wenger agreed with Wilshere about the referee's decision and added:
"He didn't want to harm the player - he mistimed his tackle."
Wilshere is now suspended for three games.
