Arsene Wenger's Party Spoiled by Late West Brom Leveller

Wenger demands VAR after West Brom snatch controversial point

But they were awarded a free-kick in a central position, just outside the box, when Lacazette was fouled by Dawson soon after the restart, which Sanchez fired into West Brom's defensive wall.

In truth it was scrappy fare. "I expect when I walk to the referee with respect and ask a question that he answers me in a normal way".

Pardew responded with three defensively minded substitutions, the emphasis appearing to be on securing a hard-earned point. "We have a meeting with the referees at the start of every season, and every time we say that the player is too close to the ball [in such an incident] for it to be a handball".

But six minutes later Jay Rodriguez equalised for West Brom as the Premier League's bottom club collected a draw their dogged display merited, even if the manner of its arrival was hugely contentious.

Dean was at the centre of attention late on in the game as he adjudged Calum Chambers to have handled the ball from a Kieran Gibbs cross.

WhatsApp's New Year's Eve Malfunction Causes Uproar In Several Countries
WhatsApp being the most used instant messenger server went down just before the clock resets to 2018. Users earlier reported WhatsApp had gone down in India and several other parts of the world.

But Arsenal's stodginess away from home is, that 3-2 victory at Selhurst Park apart, a recurring theme nowadays. That's why no-one could quite understand why they made the change.

If opposition manager Arsene Wenger decides to play Ozil, this could affect the midfielder's performance against Chelsea.

He added: 'It's hard to accept.

Iwobi then tried a speculative effort from 30 yards, following a careless West Brom pass, which Foster gathered on the bounce, before making way for Danny Welbeck, minutes after Per Mertesacker had replaced Laurent Koscielny. Robson-Kanu, in particular, did that to decent effect but rarely had anyone to aim for whenever he pulled out wide.

While the North Londoners have conceded five goals in their last two league matches, two in a win at Crystal Palace and three in a topsy-turvy draw with Liverpool, West Brom have scored only twice in their last six - and those goals came in defeats to Stoke and Manchester United.
