Wenger claims an object was thrown at him in the moments after a goalless draw between Arsenal and the Turkish side in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier in Istanbul.

The Arsenal manager, who was not hit, reported the incident to UEFA and said afterwards the object was "a bottle or something".

And UEFA's disciplinary department will now assess thier delegate's match report before deciding whether to take action.

There could be further punishment, too, for Besiktas boss Slaven Bilic, who was sent from the dugout in the final moments.

Bilic was angered by referee Milorad Mazic's decision to halt the game for an injury to Mathieu Flamini and his subsequent failure to award Besiktas an injury-time free-kick.

He said: "I have apologised to Mr Wenger and the referee. I just wasn't happy with some of the decisions. No hard feelings - I made a mistake.

"Maybe I overreacted in that situation but nothing serious happened. I see no reason for me not to be in the dugout in London."

The return leg at the Emirates is live on Sky Sports 5 HD next Wednesday, with coverage underway from 7pm.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
