Arsenal Boss Wenger Charged By FA After Draw With West Brom

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been charged by the English FA for his conduct following the Gunners' 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League on Sunday.
Wenger was angered when referee Mike Dean awarded a controversial late penalty from which the Baggies equalised, and the French manager has now been charged for his reaction.

Calum Chambers conceded the penalty in the dying moments of normal time at the Hawthorns after a James McClean own goal had put Arsenal ahead in the 83rd minute.

It was a harsh decision as the English defender could do little to prevent the ball hitting his hand when Kieran Gibbs attempted to lift the ball over him from barely a yard away.
An FA disciplinary statement said: "It is alleged his [Wenger] language and/or behaviour in the match officials' changing room after the game was abusive and/or improper and/or questioned the integrity of the match referee."
