Arsenal defender Gabriel to learn fate on Friday

Gabriel Paulista will learn whether or not he has been sanctioned by the FA on Friday.


Then Arsenal defender had until 6pm Thursday to respond to an improper conduct charge after failing to leave the Stamford Bridge pitch promptly after being sent off on Saturday.

Gabriel was given his marching orders for a reactionary kick on Chelsea striker Diego Costa but the red card and accompanying three-match ban has since been rescinded.

However, the Brazilian centre-half could still be penalised by the FA for the second charge after failing to leave the field of play in a timely and controllable manner.
