Kyle Walker to escape punishment for Arsenal tunnel incident as FA make disciplinary decision

The FA will NOT take any action against Kyle Walker following his outburst after Manchester City's crushing defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Walker clashed with Arsenal's set-piece coach Nicolas Jover following the final whistle.

As he left the field, the Man City defender failed to acknowledge Jover's handshake, prompting a scuffle between both sets of teams.

He eventually left the field after being restrained by his teammates and Arsenal security.
