Kyle Walker to escape punishment for Arsenal tunnel incident as FA make disciplinary decision

The FA will NOT take any action against Kyle Walker following his outburst after Manchester City’s crushing defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Walker clashed with Arsenal’s set-piece coach Nicolas Jover following the final whistle.

As he left the field, the Man City defender failed to acknowledge Jover’s handshake, prompting a scuffle between both sets of teams.

He eventually left the field after being restrained by his teammates and Arsenal security.

During the melee, Arsenal fans also spotted Ben White ruthlessly trolling Jack Grealish.

As for Walker, however, he has escaped any punishment for his actions, according to Simon Stone.

He will not face any FA charge or ban following his actions against Arsenal.

Pep Guardiola shared his thoughts on the incident, saying: “I know what happened, but I don’t want to say anything. They know it.”

Asked if he was happy with Arsenal’s conduct following the final whistle, he replied: “Yeah, absolutely.”

Walker took to social media to address his side’s back-to-back league defeats to Wolves and Arsenal.

Taking on Instagram, he wrote: “Back to back defeats is a level we cannot and will not accept.

“We have a period of time now to put things right and regroup and show everyone our true level. Thank you for your support today.”

The Blues are behind Tottenham and Arsenal in the table and have 18 points on the board, having won six of their opening eight league games this season.

They resume their league campaign following the international break at home to Brighton on October 21.
