The Sun says Owen took a swipe at Gunners ace Arteta in injury time of his team's 1-0 loss at the Emirates.
Owen escaped a booking although he could face FA action if ref Chris Foy admits he did not see it. Potters boss Tony Pulis said: "Arteta's challenge is poor. But Michael should not do that. That should be left to the referee.
"Let's see what the FA say. They will deal with it."
