Arsenal charged by FA after Newcastle draw


Arsenal have been hit with a charge on the part of the English Football Association, it has been revealed late on Friday.

The Gunners, of course, were back in action this past Tuesday.

After returning to action in impressive fashion on the back of the World Cup break, Mikel Arteta’s troops were pitted against high-flying Newcastle United, amid ongoing efforts to maintain their advantage atop the Premier League table.

When all was said and done, however, Arsenal ultimately saw their lead cut.

This came owing to a goalless stalemate, which left many of a Gunners persuasion feeling as though their side had been altogether hard done by.

Tuesday’s hosts at the Emirates saw a number of penalty appeals waved away by referee Andy Madley, and VAR alike.

Arteta’s stars, in turn, made their frustrations very much known, amid a tense atmosphere in north London.

Evidently, though, it has since been decided that the protests of the capital outfit’s players, late on, were taken too far.

This comes with it having this evening been confirmed that Arsenal have been charged by the FA for ‘failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in orderly fashion’.

The incident in question came about after the Gunners were denied what could well have proven a decisive spot-kick deep into injury time, for an alleged hand ball offence.
