Arsene Wenger: FA asks Arsenal boss about his latest criticism of refereeing decisions

Bad refereeing decisions cost us - Wenger
Arsene Wenger faces further Football Association disciplinary action after describing disputed refereeing decisions as "concerning coincidences".

Before Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Chelsea the Arsenal boss criticised decisions and after the match said the awarding of a penalty was "farcical".

He claimed "when it's repeated it's not coincidence."

Wenger has already been charged with misconduct after criticising a late West Brom penalty in Sunday's draw.

The Frenchman has until 18:00 GMT on Friday to respond to that charge following his conduct in the referee's changing room at the Hawthorns after Calum Chambers was penalised for handball by referee Mike Dean.

Wenger said he would "100%" contest that charge, adding: "You can listen to every interview I said. I stick to everything I said without a problem."

Arsenal conceded another late penalty against Chelsea, as Eden Hazard went down following a challenge from Hector Bellerin.

He has until 18:00 on Tuesday, 9 January to respond to the FA's request for observations about the remarks he made before and after the game.

"I must say what is more frustrating for me is that it happened many times this season - at Stoke, at Watford, at Manchester City, at West Brom," said Wenger in pre-match comments on Tuesday. "That is a concerning coincidence for me."

Pity he doesnt get as angry about our rubbish defending

- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Dang.. that's slap on the wrist. What about additional ban for Chelsea game?? (Sm124)

Club needs to decide on interim manager immediately n if the interim manager outperforms Wenger must be considered for permanent managerial position. (Sm122)

Yeah unfortunately it'll be Steve Bould and whatever happens will have no impact on Wenger's future.

He's not wrong about the referees though. The FA is the ring master of the ll circus and match fixing is their answer to entertainment.

They have a lot of clowns on offer like mike dean.

Its bad for the team cause bould is going to make things worse with a team wenger selected. But i dont think anybody cares if we lose to forest. Winning the fa cup again isn't going to change anything
