Arsenal and Manchester City clashed in an unusually entertaining Under-23 fixture as Jack Wilshere was sent off for kickstarting a brawl between the two sets of players.
Having recovered from a broken leg suffered while on loan at Bournemouth last season, Wilshere was given the chance to build up his match fitness and provided the assist for one of the goals as Arsenal led 4-1 midway through the second half.
However, the England international then took exception to a tackle from midfielder Matthew Smith, provoking a mass brawl which resulted in Wilshere and City defender Tyreke Wilson seeing red.
Arsenal went on to win the match. Still, there’s just something about a mass brawl.

Only the post denied us a ludicrous goal.
A throwback to Moussa at his best.
Who would win between Arsenal 04 and Man City 18?
Jose is pretty passionate in his response.
The most joyous player in the Premier League.
There’s a total of 20 to get.
Including a couple of notable sons.
You’ll be hearing a lot more about Allison.
Of course he meant it. He meant everything.
The second half of an epic challenge.
