Arsenal came from behind to beat Birmingham 2-1. The visitors went ahead against the run of play when striker Nikola Zigic headed home Keith Fahey’s cross.
Samir Nasri levelled from the penalty spot after a foul on Marouane Chamakh and Chamakh rounded Ben Foster to put Arsenal ahead.
Arsenal should have killed the game off but wasted and passed on the chances.
Wilshere was given his marching orders for a nasty late tackle on Zigic.
