"It was no penalty", said Wenger.

Is this a penalty for Manchester City's Raheem Sterling or a harsh call on Arsenal's Nacho Monreal?

Replays showed David Silva was offside when he released his Brazilian team-mate and that decision, coupled with the contentious penalty, was too much to bear for Wenger.

"I feel the referees don't work enough, because their level drops every season at the moment, and overall it's unacceptable what happens".

"Yeah you're right, he [Wenger] left him out at Anfield and he left him out today against your rivals", he said on Match of the Day 2. We know that he dives well - he does that very well. The England global was awarded the spot-kick - which was converted by Sergio Aguero - after being bundled over by Nacho Monreal. "Of course, Man City are on a high, but I felt we had plenty of unsafe situations and chances and I would say overall, once again, the referee made the decisions today with a soft penalty and an offside goal". We got two offside goals here last year and one this year.

Club record-signing Alexandre Lacazette was benched for the City match but came off the bench to score the Gunners' only goal. In turn, Pep Guardiola refused to discuss referee decisions. "I am disappointed. You can accept it if City win in a normal way, they are a good side, but this is unacceptable".

BBC pundit Alan Shearer went as far as to suggest the France striker should confront Wenger head-on about being benched.

"It's one thing for Wenger to deflect from his team's inadequacies, it's another to question someone's integrity and be wrong".

Kevin De Bruyne gave an early lead to his side and a relentless Manchester City kept harassing Arsenal players for the entirety of first half. "I don't think that was a problem in our game", the Gunners boss added.

Wenger insists his side battled well against leaders City, and caused risky situations themselves at the Etihad.

"They tell me it was offside and I don't like to win in that way but sometimes Arsenal win at Burnley, 96th minute, with a hand, so sometimes it is like this".
