Arsene Wenger blames referee after Arsenal suffer shock defeat at Watford

Arsene Wenger blames referee after Arsenal suffer shock defeat at Watford

Per Mertesacker headed Arsene Wenger's side into a 39th-minute lead from a corner but Troy Deeney equalised from the penalty spot in the 71st minute after Hector Bellerin had bundled over Richarlison.

Tom Cleverley went on to score an injury time victor for Watford, and Deeney has taken a not so subtle dig at Arsenal's mentality.

"I've heard Wenger's already saying the penalty is the reason they lost", Deeney told BT Sport.

The Gunners were leading going into the final 20 minutes before Hector Bellerin gave away a penalty for a challenge on Richarlison.

"Well, I'm not going to be one to tell Mr Wenger about himself, but there's a reason that they lost and it wasn't because of one penalty".

The problem, Deeney thinks, is that Arsenal don't fancy it when the going gets tough.

"I came on today and jumped up with (Per) Mertesacker".

Cow vigilantes thrash five men in Haryana; police book victim
In 2016, as many as 85 cases were registered under the Punjab Prohibition of Cow Slaughter Act 1955. Under the cow smuggling act, a case has been registered by the Faridabad police against the victims.

"I have to watch what I say, but it's [having] a bit of cojones, is what I'll say". They all just backed off, ' he said.

"I think that's what we lacked, especially in the second half".

It could be a deflection device as well, because nearly every pundit has said that penalty decision was harsh, so while Deeney may have loved his role as straight talker, was he really being completely honest or just having an easy pop at Wenger and Arsenal after his team got lucky?

Fit-again Mesut Ozil missed a splendid opportunity just before the penalty award - a "naive" piece of finishing in Deeney's eyes.

Poll said: "It just didn't look right to me".

"And I do all the ugly stuff you don't wanna do, and I'm going to make it disgusting for you".
