Wenger was angered by referee Mike Dean after his side's draw at The Hawthorns, where Calum Chambers conceded a late penalty for handball.

He will also have to watch on from the stands for the first-leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea and the Premier League match against Bournemouth.

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has received a three-match touchline ban and been fined £40,000 for his behaviour in the referee's changing room after Sunday's game against West Brom.

The Gunners boss has also been fined £40,000 for his behaviour, the FA has announced.

Arsene Wenger says he serves the game with "honesty and integrity" and refused to back down despite facing up to the prospect of a stadium ban.
