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

Mesut Ozil wrapped up warm against the cold battles with Mohamed Elneny during training

Referee Mike Dean was Wenger's target at West Brom for awarding the hosts a soft penalty for a handball by Arsenal defender Calum Chambers.

However, Jack Wilshere opened scoring in the second half, slotting the ball past Thibaut Courtois at the near post. But Bellerin's late strike denied Chelsea their 11th win in 14 league games and earned Arsenal a deserved point. "And we got again a farcical decision on the penalty but ... we knew that (would happen) as well before, so we had to deal that".

He'll serve the first of his three match ban on Sunday.

Speaking after the game Wenger said: "It was a great football game. He deserves great credit for that", he said.

Previous year was a memorable one in the Premier League, with Antonio Conte's powerful Chelsea side overcoming an exciting Tottenham outfit to claim the title back in May.

Wenger, who was charged with misconduct, received a four-game touchline suspension and fined £25,000 after his altercation with fourth official Taylor at the end of Arsenal's last-gasp defeat of Burnley in January 2017, was given until 18.00 GMT on Tuesday 9 January to respond to that separate request.

"I knew before the game that the last 20 minutes could be hard for us because we have a big disadvantage with the schedule", Wenger said, referencing having to play on Sunday while Chelsea enjoyed a further day's rest. "The goal is coming".

Alternatively, the former Barcelona forward may just have chose to go out on a high, potentially helping Arsenal win a trophy or qualify for the Champions League before he leaves.
