Gervinho Fight And Red Card – Video

Arsenal’s £10.5 million debutant Gervinho was sent-off during his side’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle following an altercation with Joey Barton, who had earlier been stamped on by Alex Song.

With a quarter of an hour left the striker, bought for £12 million from Lille and Arsenal’s only major summer signing so far, was shown a straight red card for a slap on Joey Barton, who had become incensed with the Ivorian after he took a blatant dive in the box.

Barton was hardly blameless – he sparked the confrontation by hauling Gervinho to his feet to remonstrate with him following the dive, and made a meal of what was ultimately light contact – but Arsene Wenger will now have to do without his new man for three games, with a violent conduct charge sure to follow.
