Jack Wilshere and Kevin Mirallas escape action after fracas in tunnel during Arsenal's draw with Everton
The pair came together as they walked off the pitch at half-time
The FA have announced that no further action will be taken against Jack Wilshere or Kevin Mirallas following the pair's altercation in the tunnel at the Emirates last night.
The two were involved in a fracas at half-time during the 0-0 draw between Arsenal and Everton.
It's understood that the Everton player squirted Wilshere with water as the players left the pitch, which led to Mirallas' Everton team-mates throwing themselves between the two players as the 21-year-old Arsenal player pursued his opponent.
However, referee Neil Swarbrick did not feel the incident warranted further action, so neither player will face sanction.
It was the most high profile incident in a game for which Arsene Wenger accused Everton of going "over the edge" in terms of their physicality.
Asked about Wenger's irritation at Everton's style, Moyes said: “Do you mean when we were a little bit rough with the tackling? Up north we do that quite often. That's actually allowed in football. We weren't going to come here and let Arsenal stroke the ball around and make 600 passes. He [Wenger] was upset.”
Asked whether he saw the incident between Wilshere and Mirallas at half-time, Moyes responded: “Did you see it? I didn't either. 'Didn't see it'. I know somebody who says that quite a lot.”
