Its frustrating times at the Emirates and it still could go from bad worse for the Gunners faithful.
Following the disappointing draw with Southampton in the Gunners last game, Arsene Wenger let his frustrations get the better of him and lashed out at match officials in the tunnel leading to a heated exchange between him and Saints counterpart Ronald Koeman.
The game was typified by some poor finishing by the Gunners coupled with a goalkeeping master class by recently fit again Saints stopper Fraser Forster, the goalie is yet to concede since his return from injury four games ago.
“It’s always the same with you,” Wenger reportedly said to Craig Pawson, though it was a comment on the officials in general – particularly Mason – rather than Pawson himself.
Ronald Koeman replied the Arsenal manager leaping to the defence of the match officials saying his side rather than the Referees were to blame. There was previously some bad blood between the pair, Koeman was very upset with Wenger’s protest at decisions during the Gunners heavy defeat in the reverse fixture in December.
Wenger despite not retaliating to Koeman’s comments could still face some disciplinary action.
The FA would now have to study Lee Mason’s match report and Wenger could be hit with a fine or even a touchline ban.
Arsenal are keen to get their title challenge back on track with a win at Bournemouth having not recorded a victory in the last four League games, It however a game the gaffer could miss.
