Pat to the future

Manchester City midfielder Patrick Vieira signalled he is settling back in to life in the Premier League with his first nasty foul. The Frenchman planted his studs into Stoke midfielder Glenn Whelan’s nuts in a petulant challenge.

Arsene Wenger said: “I did not see the incident because… oh, nothing to do with me anymore. Woohoo!”

The incident was not spotted by the referee, and Vieira is expected to receive a retrospective ban based on TV evidence lest Man Utd fans’ heads explode following Rio Ferdinand’s current ban.
