He was sent off. He stayed at the edge of the tunnel but the official needed him down the tunnel. He shoved him and made some comments unusual to him. Wenger eventually went down the tunnel but the damage was done.

Sanchez grabbed the winner with a panenka late in the game to the delight of the Wenger and the fans. Xhaka’s red card was a dent. His second of the season and thus a 4 match ban.

Wenger was charged and banned from the touch line for 4 matches. The Boss has accepted the charges and will miss the next four games including against Chelsea. No Xhaka, no Wenger. They can cuddle.

Steve Bould would be in charge. His first challenge will be against Southampton in the FA Cup today. Plucky Saints. Hopefully, the Gunners progress to the next stage. Wenger hinted the inclusion of one or two young players. Maybe he meant Holding and Niles. We should expect the full team though with the inclusion of Theo Walcott.

Prediction: Southampton 1-2 Arsenal.
