  • Kieran Dowell appeared to kick the ball twice as he converted Nottingham Forest's penalty

The Frenchman is already facing punishment from the Football Association for protesting the spot-kick given against Arsenal at West Brom on Sunday and he reiterated his view that some refereeing has been substandard.

The Belgium global fell under minimal contact from Hector Bellerin to earn Antonio Conte's side the spot kick which brought them level, just four minutes after Jack Wilshere's 63rd minute opener.

"No, he saw what he wanted to see and we have to deal with that. What I find awful is we just saw a great game and we talk only about this and for me it would be nice if we think about football for a change", he said.

"We got again a farcical decision on the penalty, but we knew that (could happen) before the game".

Once he had calmed down, Wenger reserved praise for Arsenal midfielder Wilshere, who scored his first league goal for the club since May 2015.

With Swedish outfit Ostersund awaiting in the last 32 of the Europa League, that competition may now offer Arsene Wenger's team their best hope of a return to European football's premier competition next season.

Jack Wilshere should have been sent off for an outrageous dive but luckily for him, referee Anthony Taylor's view was blocked by a number of players. "He deserves great credit for that", he said.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has challenged Alvaro Morata to work hard to improve in the wake of his poor performance against Arsenal.

"When you play against Arsenal, every game is very important", Conte told reporters on Tuesday.

Arsenal isn't even in City's slipstream but floating far from the leaders, sitting adrift by 23 points and actually closer to the relegation zone by four points. "We fight for a place in the Champions League", he said.
