Arsene Wenger has been hit with a three-match touchline after being charged by the FA for his behaviour in the referee's changing-room after the controversial draw at West Brom.

He will also have to watch on from the stands for the first-leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea and the Premier League match against Bournemouth.

Wenger was incensed after the Baggies were awarded a penalty in stoppage time at the Hawthorns, when the ball was adjudged to have struck Calum Chanmbers in the box.

According to an official release from the FA on Friday (5 January), the 68-year-old - who initially insisted that he would "100%" contest the charge - admitted that his language or behaviour was "abusive, improper and questioned the integrity of the match referee".

And Wenger was swift to raise the stakes again after the draw with top-four rivals Chelsea, saying the penalty count against Arsenal was "not coincidence".

In a separate case, Wenger has been asked to respond to the FA about comments he made about refereeing decisions both before and after Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Chelsea in the league.

"I have been in the 21 years, imagine what I've heard and seen in tunnels and dressing rooms down the years".

"I respect everybody's opinion but I think it was a yellow card for Hazard, 100 per cent".

Wenger said before the game against Chelsea: "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".
