The Football Association will not look into Michael Owen's reaction to a challenge by Mikel Arteta after the match official confirms that he saw the incident.

Stoke City striker Michael Owen will not be punished by the Football Association for his actions during his side's 1-0 defeat against Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

The former England international reacted angrily to a challenge by Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta and appeared to aim a punch in his direction.

However, referee Chris Foy has informed the FA that he saw the incident and felt that it did not warrant a red or yellow card. As a result, the governing body will now not investigate the incident any further.

Owen was making just his seventh appearance for the Potters at the Emirates Stadium since his arrival on a free transfer last September.
