Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will escape disciplinary action from the Football Association over his claims Raheem Sterling ''dives well'' following Manchester City's 3-1 Premier League victory on Sunday.
England winger Sterling was adjudged to have been bundled over by Nacho Monreal early in the second half of the match at the Etihad Stadium, with Sergio Aguero converting the penalty to put the home side 2-0 ahead.
Wenger disagreed with the decision and was also upset by the lack of an offside flag in the build-up to City's decisive third goal from Gabriel Jesus after Alexandre Lacazette had given the Gunners a lifeline just after the hour.
In a post-match interview with BBC's Match of the Day, the veteran Frenchman said: ''I believe it was no penalty. It was a provoked penalty by Sterling. We know that he dives well - he does that very well."
Wenger also added: "You can accept it if City win in a normal way, they are a good side, but the way it happened is unacceptable."
Wenger's comments could have left him facing a sanction from the governing body.
Sunday's defeat left Arsenal in sixth place, now some 12 points behind Pep Guardiola's unbeaten side.

Raheem Sterling is set to be out for six to eight weeks with his groin injury but Manchester City and England team-mate Joe Hart's calf problem is only likely to sideline him for around a fortnight.
The pair picked up the injuries in Sunday's 1-0 Premier League derby defeat to Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.
Speaking after the game, City boss Manuel Pellegrini suggested both players were facing up to a month out.
But, with scans having now been done, it is understood forward Sterling could be facing as much as twice that duration on the sidelines, while goalkeeper Hart could be back in a couple of weeks.
Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling are set to miss the upcoming England friendlies as Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini expects muscle injuries to keep them out for a month.
Roy Hodgson's men travel to world champions Germany next weekend for a mouth-watering friendly that is followed up days later by Holland arriving at Wembley.
However, the 24-man squad named on Thursday for those matches looks set to change after Sterling and Hart were injured as City lost 1-0 at home to rivals Manchester United on Sunday.
Sterling pulled up with a groin complaint midway through the first half and Hart was taken off on a stretcher after half-time, having sustained a calf injury trying to clear up a Martin Demichelis backpass.
"Both of them have muscle injuries," City boss Pellegrini said. "Raheem his groin and Joe in his calf.
"I don't think that a muscle injury you can be fit in one week. Normally three or four weeks."
Hart and Sterling join the likes of Wayne Rooney, Jack Wilshere and Luke Shaw on the sidelines.
