FA probes coin-throwing incidents in Premiership ties

The English FA has launched investigations into two separate coin-throwing incidents at Premiership matches over the weekend.

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie was struck by a coin thrown from the crowd during yesterday's clash with West Ham, while Fulham's Claus Jensen was also hit in their match against Everton on Saturday.

The FA says it will be looking at the referees' reports and speaking to the relevant clubs to see what action they are taking to identify the fans responsible for the incidents.
