Arsenal charged by FA over player appeal against Jamie Vardy penalty in 3-1 loss to Leicester

ARSENAL have been charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 3-1 loss to Leicester.

The incident occurred in the 75th minute of Wednesday’s defeat after Henrikh Mkhitaryan brought down Jamie Vardy for a penalty the England striker converted.

Arsenal have until 6pm on Wednesday to respond to the charge.

But Arsene Wenger might appeal after being fuming with the decision and the general performance from referee Graham Scott.

The exiting Frenchman said: “The penalty is a very creative, imaginative aspect from the referee.

“We watched it again, it’s a nice dive but it’s not a penalty. “[Mkhitaryan] plays the ball.”

“I’m convinced what changed the game was the penalty.

“There is always a reason for the defeat, but if you isolate each game, it is unfortunate what happened tonight.

“I think the Premier League has voted against VAR and it is upsetting.

“It destroys me because we were in front of the rest of the world, and now we want to be behind.”
