Arséne Wenger Set To Receive Lengthy Ban After Pushing Fourth Official Anthony Taylor

Arsenal’s dramatic 2-1 victory against Burnley grabbed a lot of the attention yesterday as two penalties in injury time saw the Gunners climb up to second in the table. With tensions running high, one of the many “incidents” to come out of the match saw the Arsenal manager push fourth official Anthony Taylor multiple times.
The Frenchman has faced action from the Football Association over the incident, as he was sent away from the touchline for his protests after referee Jon Moss awarded the visitors a controversial penalty in the third minute of stoppage time. Wenger was watching from the tunnel as Andre Gray equalised for the Clarets.
Wenger was seen throwing his arms towards Taylor before walking down the tunnel, where he proceeded to watch his side get awarded with a penalty of their own, which Alexis Sanchez scored in the 98th minute to move the Gunners up to second in the Premier League.
Many football fans and pundits alike called for a ban on the French manager, who could be forced pay a fine as well as skip crucial games against Watford, and major rivals Chelsea.
