Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is not happy with the referee’s decision

“I say it is a farcical decision, you could give 10 penalties like that a game.

“Unfortunately the games are always spoiled by factors, we can only continue how we want to play.”

He insisted: “I will contest the charge 100 per cent. You can listen to every interview I said and I stick to everything I said without any problem.

“I am 35 years in football, so I know what I say after the game. And I stand up for what I said, no problem.

“What I find terrible is that we have just seen a great football game and nobody is interested in that. We only talk about things that are nothing to do with football.”
