Arteta not pleased with referee’s decision as he insists McArthur should have been sent.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta Crystal Palace midfielder McArthur should have seen red for the challenge on Bukayo Saka in the first half.

Though the midfielder was book by the referee but the Spaniard was not happy by the decision of the referee.

“If we want to detect things that are really relevant in a game and can change a football match, then they have to be looked at,” he said.

“That situation is not only affecting them, but we have to take the player off because of the action so it is affecting it two different ways. It is not right.

“You [need to] make a straight decision, when it is so clear and so obvious straight away and they have to play with 10 men.

“Bukayo could not continue, we had to take him off at half-time, I saw the action and I can’t believe how the player continued on the pitch.

“I don’t get it. With what we were explained at the start of the season and what happened tonight, it doesn’t make any sense.”

Arsenal scored a late goal against Crystal Palace to rescue a point despite scoring first in the game.
