Owen Gets Off With Punch!

Former Toon striker Michael Owen will not face a Football Association charge for his angry reaction to a Mikel Arteta tackle in the 1-0 defeat at Arsenal on Saturday.

The 33-year-old lashed out at Arteta, catching him on the back with a mild punch.

But referee Chris Foy saw the incident and took no action which prevents the FA taking any retrospective action. Stoke were trailing to Lukas Podolski's deflected free-kick when the incident happened.

After the match Stoke manager Tony Pulis said: "Arteta's challenge was poor, but Michael should not do that."

Arteta revealed that the players had apologised to each other after the match.
