Arsene Wenger Blast Refs Over Man City Goals

Posted: 19 December, 2016 at 09:42 am

Gunners Boss, Arsene Wenger has blast referee Martin Atkinson after Arsenal's 2-1 loss at Manchester City on Sunday, saying both City goals were offside.

Wenger's side took an early lead through Theo Walcott but dropped in the second half as Leroy Sane equalised and Raheem Sterling netted the winner in the 71st minute.

However, replays showed Silva was not in Cech's direct line of sight, and Atkinson allowed both goals to stand. "The two goals are offside goals, and a game of that stature I feel enough is enough for us because we've got some bad decisions for the whole season," Wenger told Sky Sports.

"But what can I do -- we have to live with that and look at ourselves and analyse why we lost the game."

Arsenal's Goalkeeper, Cech said he had been more impeded by his own defenders, who were in front of Sterling as he took aim. "I have to say that there were players in front of the ball so I didn't see even the shot," Cech told Sky Sports. "I have to say, to be honest, there were people running across and I don't know whether one of them was David Silva or not, but I didn't see the ball because it was behind the players and obviously my reaction was late." It was the second time in five days Arsenal had lost after leading 1-0 -- they also went down 2-1 at Everton -- and the loss leaves them nine points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.

It wraps up a week that started with the Gunners drawing Bayern Munich in the Champions League knockout stages and ended with a big setback in the Premier League title race. "It's a horrible week," Wenger said. "But it's part of the season as well, and unfortunately what is horrible is that I think on our schedule we knew it was a difficult week, because we had a Champions League game before that.
