BREAKING: Rodri sent off against Nottingham Forest, means he will miss Arsenal game

Rodri has been shown a red card during Manchester City's game against Nottingham Forest for an altercation with Morgan Gibbs-White.

Pep Guardiola's side looked to be cruising 2-0 at half-time thanks to goals from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland, but a moment of madness from Rodri seconds after the break has seen City reduced to 10 men.

The Spaniard was involved in a shove-off with Gibbs-White at the corner flag, with Rodri grabbing the Forest midfielder by the neck in a moment of madness.

The 27-year-old was shown his marching orders by referee Anthony Taylor after a brief VAR review, meaning he will be suspended for City's crunch-match against Arsenal in just over two weeks' time.

Former referee Mike Dean, commenting on the incident on Sky Sports, conceded that Gibbs-White went down rather easily, but couldn't argue with the decision.

"He goes down a bit theatrically, Gibbs-White, but when you see it from another angle when you look he has pushed him in the neck, hence the reason why I think he's sent him off," he explained.
