Arsene Wenger: “It was a foul”

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger cried foul after going down 3-1 to Chelsea in the early kick off on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, leaving the Gunners trailing the Blues by 12 points in the Premier League standings.

Wenger was doing his best impression of blaming the referee for the outcome, saying in an interview with BBC Sport, “It was a foul. If you look at a number of games recently we can feel sorry. It was 100% a foul, it was even dangerous play.”

Wenger though did give credit to the Blues for their win, adding, “That doesn’t take anything away from the performance of Chelsea. We had a strong start but didn’t take the opportunities and after half time the second goal was the killer for us.

“We were really naive and not clinical in our defending. Then Chelsea looked the better side. We took risks and they were well organised and played well on the counter attack and looked powerful. We lost ball the many times. In situations we lacked maturity and experience. Individually some of our players were not at their best today,” he added.

Meanwhile, Conte was quizzed about his view of the first goal, and the Chelsea boss responded to Wenger’s foul charge, saying, “In England never. No.”
