Arsenal Boss Wenger Slams Referee After Loss To Man City

Arsenal were defeated by Manchester City, but the awarded penalty that lead to Aguero's 2-0 and an offside goal has left a sour taste in the mouth of manager Arsene Wenger.
In a post-match interview, the French boss took a swing at the referee. Wenger believes the second goal 'was no penalty.
“I believe it was no penalty. We know that Raheem Sterling dives well, he does that very well,” he said.

“And the third goal was offside. I am very upset because at 2-1 we were in the game. The third goal was the killer and it is not by coincidence that mistakes always go for the home team, as we know.

“It is unfortunate that the game finished the way it finished. I am disappointed. You can accept it if City win in a normal way, they are a good side, but this is unacceptable. Last season we lost two offside goals and it has happened again."
Asked who may be able to stop City, Wenger was again scathing.
“It will be difficult this season, the way they have started, the quality they have, but you never know. If on top of that they have decisions at home like that, they will be unstoppable,” the Frenchman said.

“You have seen what I have seen. The fact you tell me it is an offside goal says enough. I don’t want to take anything away from the quality but it happened at a moment when we were really in the game at 2-1 and it killed the game. It is the second year. We got two offside goals here last year [in a 2-1 loss] and one this year.

“The physical level [of referees] is very good, the decisions – at 2-1 we are in the game and he gives a key offside goal, and that kills the game for us. Last year if you look as well, we conceded two offside goals. Of course, they are a top team, but that makes it even more difficult for you.”
