Arsene Wenger says he's 'surprised' by Manchester City's Premier League charge and has made a prediction over a potential punishment.
The Blues have been charged by the Premier League with 'numerous breaches' of financial rules following a four-year investigation.
If the club are found guilty, they face a range of sanctions, including expulsion from the league and stripping of their league titles over the years.
But Wenger isn't convinced they'll lose their titles as he admits he was 'surprised' by the charges.

"I was in this case where I had to fight with no money against teams that had unlimited resource," he said on beIN SPORTS.
"I know well what it is to be in that position and I just felt you have in every club to work with your resources and do the best you can."
Wenger added: "After it’s a problem of the Premier League to decide.
"FFP is not perfect I agree completely on that and will people with unlimited resources who come into the game today accept that they cannot invest money?
"I cannot believe that. What is the interest in buying a football club."
Asked if Man City are at risk of losing their league titles, the Frenchman replied: "Very small one. I think so.
"I believe at the moment I know quite well Khaldoon (Al Mubarak) and I think he’s an intelligent man and an honest man so I was quite surprised by the charges they face so let’s see the outcome.
"If they are guilty then they will face penalties I don’t know what they will be."
