Moyes hits back in Fab row

Everton, Latest news update:

Everton boss David Moyes has hit back in the war of words with Arsene Wenger over Cesc Fabregas' half-time conduct on Tuesday.

The Spanish international midfielder was apparently overheard speaking to the referee as the players walked down the tunnel with the score 1-0 in favour of the Toffees at the Emirates Stadium.
Moyes then criticised the Gunners' star after the match, saying that he had accused the officials of taking money from Everton to influence decisions and stressed that he should have been red-carded for his words.
But Wenger was having none of it and, as usual, defended his player to the hilt and made it clear that his Everton counterpart should have kept quiet about the incident.
But Moyes refuses to back down and has now moved to clarify what he said and what actually happened in the tunnel.
"Cesc questioned Everton's integrity by suggesting we had possibly given money to the ref," he said. "That's why I felt if I or any player had said that, I think it would have warranted a sending off.
"Arsene seems to think that I haven't seen or heard it, but you have to decide who you believe - David Moyes or Arsene Wenger - and I'm happy for people to make their own mind up on that."
Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy Arsenal to close the gap on league-leading Manchester United and win the Premier League title this season but they will need to keep winning, starting with a difficult trip to St James' Park to play Newcastle on Saturday.
