Premier League - Wilshere: City fans abused my children

Jack Wilshere claims he stuck his middle finger up at a group of Manchester City fans because they abused him about his children.

The FA handed Wilshere a two-match for the gesture, which came during the second half of the Gunners' 6-3 defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

The England midfielder missed Monday's 0-0 draw against Chelsea and he will also sit out the Boxing Day clash at West Ham.

Wilshere, who has two children, admits he made a mistake in getting riled by the supporters who abused him, and he is braced for more barracking from the stands in the future.
