Arsene Wenger hopes to see less play-acting and more football when Arsenal tackle Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium tonight.

On the opening day of the Barclays Premier League season in August at St James' Park, new signing Gervinho was shown a straight red card for raising his hands to then Magpies midfielder Joey Barton. Arsenal's Alex Song was also later retrospectively banned for a stamp on Barton.

On over-reaction from players following a clash, Wenger said: "It annoys me, but it can happen with one of my players as well. For example, (Liverpool striker Luis) Suarez got the penalty last week. It was no penalty. Nobody touched him. Where they go overboard is that nobody touched him."
