EPL: Penalty decisions against Arsenal farcical, says Arsene Wenger

Hector Bellerin has hailed Arsenal's desire not to lose against Chelsea after they came from behind to claim a 2-2 draw at the death at the Emirates Stadium.

The official awarded the Blues a penalty for Hector Bellerin's challenge on Eden Hazard which had Wenger fuming.

West Brom equalised from the spot-kick that was awarded, and the decision was one that Wenger was adamant was unfair to his side.

Arsenal Football Club Manager, Arsene Wenger, yesterday in a post-match interview, said he would have probably committed suicide after his side's first game of the New Year against Chelsea nearly ended in defeat.

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. Bellerin re-tied the game two minutes into stoppage time with a spectacular half-volley of a partial clearance, yet Arsenal needed ex-Chelsea keeper Peter Cech to thwart Alvaro Morata one-v-one and escaped with a point when Zappacosta's follow-up shot struck the bar.

The Blues pushed for a victor and they eventually look the lead on 84 minutes, with Marcos Alonso clipping a low shot past Cech after great work from sub Davide Zappacosta.

The Arsenal manager also addressed the charge which followed Sunday's game against West Brom. A 2-2 draw against Arsenal at Emirates could be a good result but after the game there is a lot of disappointment because we created important chances.

The Belgian tipped the shot onto the post and the ball trickled across the goal line and off the other post, rebounded back to the goalkeeper.

It was tough for the Gunners to take, given their part in a rip-roaring contest in which Thibaut Courtois had made a series of brilliant saves to deny Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette.

The chances continued to fall in the first half and Cech had to be at his best in the 27th minute to keep out Tiemoue Bakayoko's close range strike after the Arsenal defence was caught napping. We will have to see the replay.

"I'm in England for 21 years, I try to serve this game with honesty and integrity and when I have something to say I will say it".

His tone turned conspiratorial when he highlighted how Tottenham Hotspur's opener in their 2-0 win at Swansea on Tuesday had been offside while they might have had Davinson Sanchez sent off.
