Fabregas contests Saha's goal
Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas faces no FA action over alleged incidents during their Premier League win against Everton.
The FA has confirmed match referee Lee Mason did not submit an Extraordinary Incident Report into alleged remarks that infuriated Everton manager David Moyes, therefore the FA will take no action.
Mason and assistant Stephen Child allowed Louis Saha to open the scoring in the first half, despite the Frenchman taking advantage of an apparent offside position.
Arsenal, who hit back in the second half through Andrey Arshavin and Laurent Koscielny, were furious and Everton boss Moyes has accused the home side's captain, Fabregas, of overstepping the mark at half-time.
When asked about his disappointment at conceding the two goals, Moyes instead decided to say to Sky Sports in his post-match interview: "I think at half-time in the tunnel was the worst.
"Fabregas should have been sent off in the tunnel for his comments about the officials. It was disgusting.
"I won't be repeating them, but maybe someone will."
Moyes, when asked to explain, added: "No I won't. I'll just say that he should have been sent off for his comments to the officials coming up the tunnel."
Moyes agreed that Everton's opener should not have stood, despite Koscielny deflecting Seamus Coleman's pass to Saha, but that could not hide the Scot's overall disappointment.
Everton have now lost 13 of their last 15 Premier League trips to Arsenal and sit at the wrong end of the table with 27 points from 24 matches.
