FA asks Arsenal's Arsene Wenger to explain comments on referees

"I think we should won this game because of the chances we had".

Assistant Steve Bould will now be the leading presence on the touchline for Sunday's FA Cup third round tie against Championship side Nottingham Forest at the City Ground and the away leg of Arsenal's Carabao Cup semi-final meeting with Chelsea on Wednesday in addition to next weekend's top-flight trip to Bournemouth. "We got again a farcical decision on the penalty but we knew that as well before so we had to deal with that".

After Marcos Alonso put Chelsea in front with six minutes left, Bellerin enjoyed a sweet moment of redemption as he blasted Arsenal's 90th-minute equaliser.

The North London club, which drew the first blood via a Jack Wilshere goal in the 63rd minute, had to settle for a 2-2 draw with the visitors.

Wenger was hit with an FA charge for his conduct towards referee Mike Dean after the Chambers penalty incident.




But against Chelsea, just as against Crystal Palace and Liverpool over the Christmas period, the unsettled Chilean was 100 percent committed and determined to make an impact for Arsene Wenger's team.

"It was non-stop football, running up and down", said Bellerin. "What I find bad 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.

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.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has challenged Alvaro Morata to work hard to improve in the wake of his poor performance against Arsenal. "He has to stay calm and continue to play this way, the goals are coming", Conte said.

The point saw Arsenal remain in sixth place 21 points behind champions-elect Manchester City.
