Arsenal manager fined and suspended by the FA

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has received a three-match touchline ban and has been fined £40,000 for his behaviour in the referee's changing room following last Sunday's draw at West Bromwich.

Wenger was furious after referee Mike Dean awarded the Baggies a late penalty for handball when a cross by Kieran Gibbs struck Calum Chambers at close range.

He confronted Dean after the match, launching a foul-mouthed tirade after Jay Rodriguez converted the penalty to nick a 1-1 draw.

This means that Wenger will now be absent from the Arsenal dug-out for their FA Cup third-round tie at Nottingham Forest on Sunday, Wednesday's Carabao Cup semi-final, first leg against Chelsea and the following Sunday's trip to Bournemouth in the FA Cup.
