The incident in question was when Calum Chambers was penalised for handball in the box by referee Mike Dean.

Arsene Wenger will be absent from the dugout for Arsenal's upcoming matches against Nottingham Forest, Chelsea and Bournemouth after being handed a three-game touchline ban by the Football Association (FA).

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has received a three-match touchline ban and been fined £40,000 for his behaviour in the referee's changing room after Sunday's game against West Brom. "He was also fined £40,000 ($54,000)".

Amazingly, that might not even be the last of the disciplinary action against Arsene Wenger.

Describing the incident, Wenger claimed that the decision was a "farce".

Arsenal also conceded another late spot-kick in their Premier League fixture against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday when Eden Hazard went down following a challenge from Hector Bellerin.

The 68-year-old has been asked by the FA to explain his comments before and after the London derby about officiating.

Wenger has until 6pm on Tuesday to respond to the FA's request for his observations.

The laws of the game clearly state that a manager shouldn't publicly question the integrity of match officials no matter how aggrieved they may feel about match decisions. "That is a concerning coincidence for me".

He said: "We got again a farcical decision and mentally we were shocked".

But the visitors will be without their manager on the touchline following his outburst on New Years Eve in the Premier League against West Brom. Look since the start of the season; it is what we have to take.

"You read the foreign papers what they write about that and the English papers and you will see a difference". Then we could have lost the game but we had the resources to come back, and in the end maybe it's a fair result.
