Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere is expected to escape being punished by the Football Association after the midfielder vented his anger at referee Phil Dowd on Twitter following his side’s 4-4 draw with Newcastle.
Arsenal were 4-0 up at half-time but after Abou Diany was sent off Newcastle took full advantage of their extra player to stage a remarkable comeback.
Shortly after the final whistle at St James’ Park, the 19-year-old wrote on his Twitter account: ‘Inconsistent refereeing needs to stop. It’s killing the game. If Diaby goes..what’s the difference between that and Nolan on our keeper!?? #joke’
