Man City star Rodri SENT OFF for grabbing Gibbs-White’s throat… and will miss huge Arsenal clash

MANCHESTER CITY star Rodri was sent for grabbing Morgan Gibbs-White’s neck in a moment of madness.

The City midfielder was involved in a furious altercation with the Nottingham Forest ace by the corner flag before the pair became embroiled in a pushing match.

But Rodri then lost his head and put his hands around the Englishman’s throat.

This prompted referee Anthony Taylor to send off the Spaniard, while Gibbs-White also received a yellow card for his part in the bust-up.

The nature of the foul being violent conduct is set to see Rodri miss at least the next three domestic games.

And this means Rodri will be unavailable for City’s huge clash against Arsenal in October.

City’s next three games see them take on Newcastle in the League Cup before a visit to Wolves at the end of September.

A Champions League clash against RB Leipzig will come before the Arsenal match, though domestic suspensions do not impact European availability.

It adds to a growing list of absentees for Pep Guardiola.

City are already without Kevin De Bruyne, Mateo Kovacic and John Stones.


Jack Grealish is fresh off the back of his own injury but came off the bench late on in the game.

Bernardo Silva was forced off during their midweek win over Crvena Zvezda.

Ederson threatened to add himself to that list after bumping heads with Taiwo Awoniyi minutes after Rodri was sent off.

City were 2-0 up at the time of the sending off and managed to see out the match with that score line.
