Football pundit, Richard Keys, has urged the FA to penalize Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta for his unacceptable touchline behaviour during his side’s Premier League derby win over Chelsea on Sunday.
Arsenal secured a narrow 1-0 victory against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Gabriel Magalhaes scored the only goal of the match in the second half to give the Gunners all three points against the Blues.
The win allowed Arsenal to retain their place at the top of the Premier League table, with Arteta’s side leading second-placed Manchester City by two points after 13 games.
However, during the encounter, an animated Arteta was often seen coming out of his technical area while his Chelsea counterpart, Graham Potter, remained rooted in his.
Posting a picture of Arteta outside his technical area, Keys urged the FA to take harsh action against the former Manchester City assistant coach.
He wrote on Twitter,
“Why is this allowed every week @FA_PGMOL? Arteta has been jumping up & down all game – way outside his technical area. Potter is in his & 4th (official) is watching. Do something about this man.”
