Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has been charged by the Football Association (FA) for his misconduct against match officials during the English Premiere League (EPL) tie against West Brom. The Frenchman was left frustrated after his defender Calum Chambers was penalised for a handball in the opponent box by referee Mike Dean on Sunday. Arsenal later went on register a 1-1 draw in that fixture.

Wenger allegedly misbehaved after the match in the officials' changing room. He was also reportedly abusive and questioned the integrity of the referee, according to BBC Sport. The Arsenal coach has time until 6 p.m. on Friday to respond to the FA charge.
