Arsene Wenger hit out at referee Anthony Taylor after Arsenal’s draw with Chelsea

The London rivals drew 2-2 at the Emirates this evening in a thrilling Premier League clash.

Jack Wilshere’s fine opener for Arsenal was cancelled out minutes later when Eden Hazard won and scored a penalty for the Blues.

Marcos Alonso then put the visitors ahead before Hector Bellerin claimed a dramatic late point for Arsenal.

Wenger was left ‘frustrated and upset’ by Taylor’s decision to award Chelsea a spot-kick, insisting his side suffered from more poor officiating.

He said: “It was a remarkable game. Once again we got a very bad decision against us.

"We have to account in our preparation for that's what we have to face. You see good football. Unfortunately you see as well bad decisions.

"I don’t want to start [talking about individual decisions] because it gets me frustrated and upset.

"You look at matters that influence the game. If it’s a penalty against us tonight it's at least two for us.

"I love football and want to talk about football and not referees.

"It was a great football game. That's what you want people to talk about.

"The media and social networks drive everyone crazy today but what is important to me is a good football game.

"We played three games in six days and you could see the team gave absolutely everything, we have a busy schedule and bad decisions but still great quality in our games."

Arsenal return to action by taking on Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

The Gunners then face Chelsea again in the first-leg of their EFL Cup semi-final.
