Arsenal Lost, Wenger Referee’s Critique of a Penalty Prize for Watford

Arsenal Lost, Wenger Referee’s Critique of a Penalty Reward for Watford Arsenal defeated dramatically 1-2 at home to Watford on Saturday (14/10/2017). Coach Arsene Wenger “sprayed” referee Neil Swarbrick who led the game.

Arsenal took the lead with a goal by captain Per Mertesacker (39th minute).

Greatly, Watford reversed the spot in the last 20 minutes through goals by Troy Deeney (71 ‘) and Tom Cleverley (90 + 2’).

Watford’s first goal provoked controversy because it came from a penalty kick that according to Wenger invented the referee.

The process stems from a violation of Hector Bellerin against Richarlison in the forbidden box.

Watford’s offensive wing was off balance by being exposed to physical contact with Bellerin.

Wenger judged diving.

“It was an embarrassing decision, but what can we do? Nothing We can only talk and talk The penalty was created by the referee,” said Arsene Wenger, quoted from The Guardian.

“The referee’s decision was wrong, that’s it.The incident came at a very good time for Watford, no penalty, no goals,” Wenger said.

Opinion Wenger supported the analysis of former English Premier League referee, Graham Poll.

He considered Richarlison diving because there was almost no contact between him and Bellerin.

“It was certainly not a penalty,” said Poll.

As a side to profit from victory, Watford coach Marco Silva tries to avoid a deeper controversy.

“I respect the referee’s decision, of course, when I see the incident, I think the situation is 50 to 50. However, I do not see Richarlison doing the simulation,” Silva said.

Negative results at Vicarage Road put Arsenal sixth in the Premier League with 13 points.

On the other hand, Watford rocketed into the top four thanks to 15 points.
