Arsenal Suffers Major Setback as FA Orders the Following Penalty Days After Drawing With Newcastle

Arsenal have been accused by the Football Association of failing to test their players during Tuesday's goalless draw against Newcastle United. 

Arsenal were denied two late penalties, and several players confronted referee Andrew Madley in stoppage time to appeal a penalty for being able to use the ball with their hands. Madley, who drew nine yellow cards in a messy and messy game, dismissed the appeals. 

"Arsenal FC allegedly failed to ensure their players behaved in an orderly manner in the 95th minute, and the club has until Tuesday, January 10 2023, to respond in the meantime we assure the management of the club and find that repercussions are necessary. As a fact we cannot see foul play and allow it continue," the FA said in a statement announced Friday. 

The top team, Arsenal, is five points ahead of the runner-up, Manchester City. They will return to action on Monday against Oxford United in the FA Cup.
