Owen in hot water after punch

Michael Owen faces an anxious wait to discover if he is to be punished for throwing a punch during Stoke City's 1-0 defeat at Arsenal on Saturday.

The former England forward, 33, appeared to strike Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta on the back after reacting angrily to a full-blooded challenge by the Spanish midfielder. (Arsenal, English Premier League, Michael Owen, Stoke city)

After the FA stop rolling around the floor laughing that anyone could actually be hurt by a Michael Owen punch they will eventually charge Arteta for attacking Owen's hand with his back, breaking Owen's hand in 17 places.

I missed the "punch". It seems more like a weak shove.
