Arsenal boss Wenger to learn today if charge will be made

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will learn today if he will face an FA rap for pushing fourth official Martin Atkinson after Arsenal's 1-1 draw at Sunderland.

An FA spokesman said they will check ref Phil Dowd's report to see if it mentions the incident.

TV replays clearly showed the Gunners boss shove the official in the back having complained Darren Bent's 95th-minute equaliser came after the indicated four minutes of stoppage time.

Wenger said: "It was outside the stoppage time. I know the referee can give more than the four but I think in the four minutes nothing happened to justify the extension."
