Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has accepted a charge of improper conduct and an £8,000 fine by the Football Association following his actions at the end of the Barclays Premier League match with Sunderland on Saturday.
He will serve a one-match touchline ban at Tuesday night's Carling Cup third-round clash at Tottenham.
The Gunners boss was fuming after his side conceded a dramatic equaliser in the fifth minute of stoppage time at the Stadium of Light, which denied them the chance to go top of the table. Wenger appeared to sarcastically pat fourth official Martin Atkinson on the back as Bent's goal came some 15 seconds after the allotted four minutes which had been displayed, and was also critical in his post-match comments.
