Stoke's Michael Owen will not face any action over his clash with Arsenal's Mikel Arteta on Saturday.
Owen appeared to hit Arteta on the back following a late tackle from the Spaniard but the former England international escaped unpunished. It was speculated that he would face a retrospective ban from the Football Association but he is in the clear.
Referee Chris Foy included the incident in his match report and as a result of official seeing the incident the FA are not in a position to take any action against the striker.
Owen spoke with Arteta after the match and apologised for the incident, which was reciprocated by the Arsenal striker.
"There was a bit of tension. I said 'Michael, I'm sorry', he did the same thing and it finished there and there are no problems now," Arteta told BBC Sport.
