Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger handed three-match ban over referee comments

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger handed three-match ban over referee comments

Wenger also admitted that Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere may have dived in a second-half incident that some pundits felt warranted a second yellow card for the midfielder.

Replays showed that Bellerin had only made contact with the sole of Hazard's boot but referee Anthony Taylor, after a moment's hesitation, pointed to the spot.

Arsenal fans believe their side were on the wrong side of a soft spot-kick for the second game in a row.

But it would be Bellerin who had the final say in the dying seconds as he bagged a late leveller to earn a share of the spoils.

Back came Arsenal in a thrilling finale as Bellerin's whipped effort flashed past Courtois in stoppage-time, but the Gunners nearly lost it again as Cech thwarted Morata before Zappacosta thundered the rebound against the crossbar in the dying seconds.

Chelsea remained in third place and one point behind Manchester United following their stalemate. Sanchez made a shot from the eight yards behind which was stopped by the goalkeeper Courtois by his hand and later hit to the post.

The Spaniard scored a stoppage-time equaliser to salvage a 2-2 draw in an end-to-end game at the Emirates. They have definitely missed Mesut Özil, and if they keep making strides like this when they get their other first-team players back, then a top-four finish may not be as far-fetched as it has seemed recently. An already physical game got even scrappier after that, but Arsenal stepped up their defending a bit and, for a time, kept Chelsea from adding to their tally. A crucial factor in those victories has been Tottenham's sheer scoring power, as the side from north London have scored at least two goals in five of their last six league outings.

"We looked like we were mentally shot and could have lost the game - we had the resources to come back to 2-2".

Wenger said he had not requested a personal FA hearing to plead his case after being charged, having said after the Chelsea game that he would contest it.

A minute later Lacazette nearly doubled the lead but his shot inside the box was saved by Courtois. "I think he is at the level now where not many people expected him to be", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was quoted as saying during a news conference.

Look, what I find awful is that we have just seen is a great football game and we talk only about things that are nothing to do with football.
