Arsenal hit with £20,000 fine for players losing their heads over controversial Man City penalty after VAR review


ARSENAL have been fined £20,000 for losing their heads after Manchester City’s controversial penalty at the weekend.

Furious Gunners players surrounded referee Stuart Attwell after he gave City’s equalising spot-kick after being recommended to view Granit Xhaka’s clash with Bernardo Silva on the pitchside monitor.

Players from both sides engaged in a bout of pushing and shoving after the changed decision.

Xhaka, incandescent at being penalised, told the referee he should look again after he saw the incident replayed on the giant screens at the Emirates.

Arsenal players including Gabriel attempted to scuff up the penalty spot, although Riyad Mahrez still drilled home.

But the Gunners accepted a charge of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion under FA Rule E20.1 and received the standard penalty.

The FA is still considering action after City matchwinner Rodri and team-mates were pelted with missiles while celebrating his injury-time strike.
