Arsenal boss won’t face charges despite furious rant after Chelsea defeat

It has been revealed that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will not be charged by the Football Association despite his public rant at referee Mike Dean after their 2-0 loss against Chelsea, Express reports.

Wenger was livid that the referee did not dismiss Diego Costa after the Blues striker clashed with Gunners defender Gabriel, who was sent off for an alleged stamp on Costa.

Costa was also involved in a scrap with Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny in the penalty area, in which his hands were used to claw on the Frenchman’s face but was unseen by referee Dean.

The Gunners’ day worsened when Santi Cazorla was the second player dismissed for picking up a second yellow card, leaving his side to defend with just nine men against the champions.

Wenger said: “(There is a) big sense of injustice. I think Diego Costa is a red card.

“I would not like to be Mike Dean tonight. I cannot understand how he dealt with the situations.

“Costa twice should be sent off. He hits him in the face in purpose. In every game he has aggravation and he gets away with it because of the weakness of the referee. We knew before the game he is only looking at that.

“Gabriel should not have responded at all but the two sending offs for us and Costa staying on the pitch is a shame.”

However, Wenger is set to avoid any charges from the FA following his comments, which they believe have not breached any of their regulations.

Costa and Gabriel have both been charged for their actions, but the Gunners are set to appeal the decision to reduce Gabriel’s three-match ban down to two.
