'The mentality of a 12-year-old' – Reaction to Cesc Fabregas' bizarre red card
Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas can book himself early summer holidays after seeing red in strange circumstances at the Hawthorns tonight.
The champions were trailing to a stunning Saido Berahino finish when the former Arsenal man got his marching orders on the half-hour mark. After a melee broke out in the box, the Spaniard pinged the ball from distance and hit Chris Brunt on the head.
He was quickly dismissed and will now serve a three-game ban for his actions.
The reaction online has been mixed to say the least in what is effectively a dead-rubber in the Midlands.
