Stoke 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 former England striker, an 84th-minute substitute for Geoff Cameron, appeared to lash 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.
