VIDEO: Michael Owen Reacts to Arteta’s Challenge

owen-artetaMichael Owen could face a retrospective disciplinary charge from the FA after attempting to throw a punch at Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta in Stoke City’s 1-0 defeat at the Emirates.
The former England striker, who had been brought on as a late substitute, reacted fiercely to a strong tackle from the Spaniard and aimed a right-hander – missed by referee Chris Foy – that connected only weakly with Arteta’s shoulder.

Owen then squared up to Jack Wilshere, who had rushed to the scene and the two players became embroiled in a pushing match.
The incident came amid a bad-tempered end to a match, in which Stoke contested Lukas Podolski’s winner, between two clubs with a history of confrontation dating back to an incident when Aaron Ramsey broke a leg in a challenge from Ryan Shawcross three years ago.
