The FA has slammed the Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger a four-match touchline ban and a £25,000 fine after accepting a charge of misconduct for his behaviour in the 2-1 win over burnley, BBC Sports reports.

Wenger, 67, was charged with verbally abusing and pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor after being sent off. His ban starts immediately so he misses Saturday’s FA Cup game at Southampton.

If that tie needs a replay, Wenger will return for the Premier League game against Hull on 11 February.

However, if the match is settled on Saturday, the Hull game will be the fourth and final one for which the Frenchman is banned, following Premier League games against Watford and Chelsea.

Wenger reacted angrily to Burnley being awarded a 93rd-minute penalty at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, one they scored to level at 1-1.
