Arsene Wenger produced a whinge over the fact that Andy Carroll wasn’t sent off during yesterday’s game.
The striker received a yellow card for a foul on goalscorer Laurent Koscielny early on and then escaped a yellow for what many saw as the use of an elbow in the second half.
Wenger was clearly taken surprise by AC’s presence on the pitch at all and may not have fully planned for it as he declared: “He is lucky to finish the game.
“But that doesn’t mean we have to concede goals to headers if he stays on the pitch. We have to look at ourselves. “I believe, yes he was lucky. I didn’t expect him to start at all, he hasn’t played in the last five or six games.”
“First of all because he’s good in the air and we lost urgency when 2-0 up after 43 mins. We have a good game but a bad result, it’s a weakness the goals we concede since the start of the season is headers in our box and that happened today.”
