Wenger still disappointed with Chelsea’s “scandalous” goal
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger remains disappointed with the officiating in his team’s defeat at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
The match ended 3-1 in favour of Chelsea but Wenger insists the match was even and was decided by poor officiating which allowed Chelsea’s first goal to stand.
“Overall we did not defend well, especially on the goals,” Wenger told Sky Sports.
“It was a very even game with unexpected goals and chances. If you look at the saves made by the two goalkeepers, it was a very even game.
“On top of that, I think we made some tactical mistakes, especially for the first goal and on top of that, we were unlucky as the goal was a scandalous goal.”
While former referee Dermot Gallagher told BBC Five Live Sport that the decision of the referee to allow the goal was the right one, Alonso’s clash with Bellerin has continued to divide opinions with Wenger tagging it a “100% foul”.
The result means Arsenal go into tomorrow’s fixture against Hull City on 47 points -12 points of the pace- and needing a win to keep up
