Watch as Jack Wilshere and Joao Pedro sent off in huge brawl as raging Bournemouth and Watford stars clash after whistle

BOURNEMOUTH'S clash with Watford descended into a chaotic brawl involving two red cards as the Cherries grabbed a narrow win on the South Coast.

Hornets striker Joao Pedro was sent off for a second yellow card after a challenge on Jefferson Lerma deep into stoppage time at the Vitality Stadium.

The Colombian then aimed a little shove at Tom Cleverley, with the former Manchester United midfielder not taking too kindly to his antics, with incensed former Cherry Dan Gosling also getting right into the thick of things.

Phillip Billing didn't help the Watford players' moods, by seemingly laughing at their anguish.

Things swiftly escalated, with pushing and shoving breaking out between a number of players on both teams.

And just as it seemed to have calmed down slightly after Pedro's exit, the handbags flared up yet again, with Jack Wilshere also being shown a second yellow card for his role in the ruckus.

The former Arsenal star had seen the red mist, steaming in from nowhere to get involved with Cleverley.

Suddenly Gosling was having to play the mediator, as team-mate Ismaila Sarr appeared determined to get to Bournemouth full-back Adam Smith in the unsavoury scenes.

The bad blood started earlier in the match, when Lerma made a meal of a Nathaniel Chalobah challenge that resulted in the former Chelsea star being booked.

But the midfielder, having since been substituted, appeared to see funny side of the late scenes, captured on camera laughing at Lerma's actions.

Among the chaos, Sarr was also shown a yellow card for his role in the drama.
