The charge relates to Wenger’s conduct in the match officials’ changing room after the match, with an FA statement saying:
“It is a concerning coincidence for me. That is why as well I was not at all happy with the movement the referee made as to why he gave the penalty. It did not correspond at all with what happened.
“On that front it’s a bit worrying. He saw what he wanted to see.”
