Arsenal have been charged by the FA for ‘failing to control their players’ during the 3-1 defeat to Leicester on Wednesday evening.
We assume the incident relates to the award of a penalty in the second half when Henrikh Mkhitaryan was adjudged to have fouled some bloke but it really looked a bit soft.
Arsenal’s players objected, Rob Holding said “You’re an embarrassment ref!”, and now we face some charges which will probably result in a fine or something but frankly, who cares at this point?

Meanwhile, Huddersfield boss David Wagner says the home side will pay tribute to Arsene Wenger ahead of the Arsenal manager’s final game in charge of the club after 22 years in the Premier League.
The Terriers are now safe from relegation, so it’s a no pressure day, something the German acknowledged ahead of Sunday’s encounter.
“I’m so happy that we are able to host him in his last Premier League game after 22 years, that we are able to host him in these circumstances, we really can give him all the honour and all the attention he deserves,” he said.
“This is possible after our last result on Wednesday and we as a football club will do it. We have the biggest respect for what he has done and we’re happy we play our last game against him.
“We, the players and the staff will give him a guard of honour and the club, for sure, has a present for him as well.”
The Arsenal Huddersfield connection goes back to the days of Herbert Chapman, so this is a really nice touch.
