Again, English Referee Sends Off Wrong Player

Referee Neil Swarbrick has attracted unwelcome headlines after he appeared to send off the wrong West Brom player in just the second minute of their 3-0 Premier League defeat to Manchester City.

It was a disastrous start for the Baggies as defender Gareth McAuley was shown the red card following a foul by Craig Dawson on Wilfried Bony on the edge of the penalty area.

According to BT Sport commentator Darren Fletcher, the referee told a reporter at half-time that it was indeed a case of mistaken identity with West Brom boss Tony Pulis clearly livid with the decision.

Pulis waited until Swarbrick had left the pitch but continued to rant at him as the pair disappeared after the half-time whistle.
