The repercussions of Arsenal’s late win over Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday look like they will last for some time.
Wenger refused to leave the Emirates touchline and also pushed fourth official Anthony Taylor in the final few seconds of the match, from the tunnel.
The Arsenal manager apologised to the media after the game for his behaviour but this is unlikely to save Wenger from a suspension.
The FA will wait for the match report from Jon Moss but Wenger is likely to face a similar punishment to that received by Alan Pardew in 2012 for shoving an assistant referee.
Pardew, then at Newcastle, was suspended for two games and fined 20,000 pounds.
Arsenal’s next game is away at Southampton in the FA Cup, followed by a home Premier League match with Watford before the visit to Chelsea.
