Alexander Hleb will find out tomorrow if he has played his last of the season - and possibly for Arsenal - after he was charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

The Belarus winger was involved in an off-the-ball clash with Reading captain Graeme Murty during last Saturday's 2-0 win at the Emirates.

He is expected to respond to the charge and will learn his fate when a regulatory commission set to hear the case meets at the FA's Soho Square headquarters on Thursday.

Hleb appeared to strike the Royals defender, but the incident was completely missed by referee Peter Walton.

However, FA officials reviewed television footage and charged the Arsenal winger on Tuesday.
