Arsene Wenger has criticized the decision by referee Mark Clattenburg who awarded Everton a corner at the end of the game, prompting Ashley Williams to score the winner as Arsenal lost 2-1 at Goodison Park on Tuesday.
This was the first time Arsenal conceded from a corned in the Premier League this season after Clattenburg decided that Laurent Koscielny had touched the ball rather than Everton substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Williams headed the winner in the 86th minute and completed the amazing comeback his side has done after Seamus Coleman canceled Alexis Sanchez‘s goal.
The loss has led Arsenal to waive the opportunity to lead the Premier League as league leaders Chelsea are playing Sunderland tonight. Arsene Wenger admitted he was saddened by the decision of Clattenburg.
“It was not a corner,” he said as quoted by Sky Sports “You could see from our side it was no corner.
“But I think we have to live with a wrong decision and it does not explain why we did not head the ball after.
“I think I am really disappointed because Clattenburg was in a very good position to see they headed the ball out and it’s not the first time we are unlucky with this decision this season.
“Overall, I do not want to speak about the referee too much. It is not my problem.”
