Last updated : 24 September 2003 By Chris Parry

"The Board is taking this matter seriously and intends to meet in the near future to further discuss the events of last Sunday.

"At this juncture, we do not have the video evidence supplied to the Football Association and are not going to jump to any premature conclusions.

"The Club demands high standards both on and off the field and the Board believes these were not met last Sunday.

"Arsène Wenger has already addressed the players on this issue."
