Arsene Wenger blames referee after Arsenal suffer shock defeat at Watford

16 October 2017

Manager Marco Silva defended Richarlison and was quick to reject accusations that the Brazilian forward had exaggerated his coming together with Bellerin to earn his team a penalty.

Danny Murphy categorically argued with Wenger's claim the decision was scandalous.

Arsenal should not have had a penalty awarded against them in their 2-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday, according to former Premier League referee Graham Poll.

And in the dying seconds of the match, Tom Cleverley was in the right place at the right time to crash home a rebound for the victor.

"We can talk and talk and talk". It was not a penalty, it was a creation of the referee. And it came at an absolutely important time for them. "Well, I'm not going to be one to tell Mr Wenger about himself, but there's a reason they lost and it wasn't because of one penalty".

"I believe we had many, many risky situations where we could have scored and we didn't and we panicked a bit at the end".

"I came on today and jumped up with Mertesacker - I didn't even have to jump, actually".

Troy Deeney believes Mesut Ozil is not ruthless enough in comparison to Arsenal legends of years gone by and is too "nonchalant" about wasting great opportunities.

The Hornets had possession aplenty, but failed to anything on Gunners goalie Petr Cech until Watford's rambunctious captain replaced the ineffective Andre Gray with around half an hour remaining.

"Whenever I play against Arsenal - and this is just a personal thing - I go up and think "let me whack the first one, then we will see who wants it".
