Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger banned by FA following West Brom clash

Arsenal team news Injuries suspensions and line-up vs Nottingham Forest

Wenger admitted a charge of using inappropriate language in the row, and has subsequently been given a three-game touchline ban for his actions, confirmed in a statement released by the FA on Friday afternoon.

Arsenal were denied a victory at the Hawthorns when Calum Chambers was adjudged by referee Mike Dean to have handled the ball in the box, enabling Jay Rodriguez to equalize from the penalty spot.

Wenger has separately been asked for his observations for comments made both before and after Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Wednesday night, for which he has until Tuesday 9 January to respond, and could face further punishment.

He will now miss Sunday's FA Cup tie at Nottingham Forest, Wednesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg with Chelsea and the trip to Bournemouth the following Sunday. "He was also fined £40,000".

Earlier, Wenger said he was unrepentant over his comments about penalty decisions against the Gunners.

He'll serve the first of his three match ban on Sunday. One hundred per cent [he dived].

And Wenger was swift to raise the stakes again after the draw with top-four rivals Chelsea, saying the penalty count against Arsenal was "not coincidence".

"From what I've heard and seen in tunnels and dressing rooms down the years, I'm surprised and shocked to be charged", he said.

Wenger told reporters when quizzed on his outburst: "I've nothing to add, I maintain what I said".

"I respect everyone's opinion. I have nothing to change in that", the Gunners boss said.

Wenger exchanged frank words with referee Mike Dean after the match, an argument that continued into the referees' changing room.

"For me, they have to serve the game, like we have to serve the game, and to try to give positive emotions to people who love football in the stand", Wenger continued.
