Manchester City's Raheem Sterling 'dives well', claims Arsene Wenger

Francis Coquelin started in defence for Arsenal

The Gunners boss claimed Sterling "dives well" after earning the penalty which allowed the Premier League leaders to take a 2-0 lead in Sunday's clash at the Etihad Stadium. The Frenchman was also angered that neither David Silva nor eventual goalscorer Gabriel Jesus were flagged offside in the build-up to City's third goal.

With the latter two goals coming from a contentious penalty and a situation that could have been deemed offside, Wenger says that the decisions being made by officials are only making it harder to compete with the Sky Blues this season.

"He was afraid of Manchester City and his team were passive as a result".

He said: "We had an extra attacking player going forward but at the end of the day we set up very well to play against City and we were just unfortunate". We got two offside goals here last year and one this year.

"I am disappointed. You can accept if it City win in a normal way, they are a good side, but the way it happened is unacceptable".

"We won in the best way".

Former MLB, Syracuse Chiefs ace Roy Halladay dies in Florida plane crash
In his first start with the Phils, Halladay allowed just one run in seven innings with nine strikeouts against the Nationals. Investigators say they have not found a flight plan so they don't know how many people were on the plane.

The 25-year-old has made nearly 200 appearances for the Turkish giants, scoring 27 and providing 44 assists over that time. The chances we created and the few chances we conceded.

He added: "Arsene Wenger's game plan was to stop Manchester City playing and for periods, it worked". It will be hard. But you never know. At 2-1 we are in the game, and he gives a clear offside goal, and of course, that kills the game for us. "If on top of that they have decisions at home like that, they will be unstoppable".

Guardiola showed his frustration at times during the game but was full of praise for his side afterwards, particularly given their midweek exploits against Napoli.

"They were not able to play the way they wanted in the final third and that is where Wilshere would have made a difference".

"There's nothing that you can do, we just have to move on to the next game".
